I had MuchMusic playing as my background noise this morning when I overheard a Media Education type promo on the station. After a bit of searching, I was led to Much Music’s Media Education program. I’ve never noticed this before and it looks like a good resource, complete with student study guides (although I have yet to figure out where to get the corresponding programs).
Also of note, two other sites launched to support National Media Education Week:
1) Talk Media, is a new media literacy blog on MNet’s award winning Web site
2) Media Education: Make It Happen! program is a series of free downloadable resources to help educators understand and facilitate media literacy in their classrooms. The program consists of a booklet, PowerPoint workshop, and a facilitatorâ€™s guide with handouts.
Lots of stuff to explore. Let’s all take Media Education seriously this November, and always.
