Description

Description

Liz Schulze is an incredibly engaging and knowledgeable educator. She has been trumpeting the dangers of youth social media culture and teachers in Vancouver schools can see the results. How can we save our students from these Tech Giants?


Educate them.


Our students' lives are dominated by algorithmically curated entertainment, addictively amusing social media, and unimaginably vast information sources, all designed to keep their eyes glued to the world inside a screen.  As educators we are in a strange sort of competition with this alternate world, teaching in an often-analog space and working to systematically develop fundamentals while our students' time is dominated by moment-to-moment stimulation.  What's a 21st Century teacher to do?  

Media literacy offers a critical and creative framework to apply to any subject area, keeping education relevant and integrating the Core Competencies into the online world.  Students can learn how to think, and to create, critically and deeply, but only when given conceptual tools that build their capacity to navigate our ever more complex and overwhelming world.  Join us as we navigate the deep waters of media literacy in the modern classroom.
