Catching up with our collaborators: "Teaching Your Students the Power of Media"

A Google presentation from Tarrant Institute collaborators Melissa Bushey and Rebecca Boardman.

"Students are influenced daily, by advertising propaganda.  It is important to make them aware of media so that they become more critical consumers and less victims of media consumption.  We will share an engaging media literacy unit and an advertisement project that incorporates both art and literacy skills and includes a variety of Google tools such as the free graphic program Google draw, and forms, presentations and videos."

First presented at Dynamic Landscapes 2012.
