PLAY AND LEARNING COMBINED.
We know alot about the design of summer learning experiences for children. We can help you bring these programs to your community.
Children benefit from a combination of play and learning about media, popular culture, and digital technologies. Using a service learning model that involves recent college graduates with interests in media education, film and video production, social media, music and web production, we create engaging summer progams.
Children learn about the different purposes of media messages—to inform, to entertain and to persuade. Children use Flip video cameras to create videos and use simple wiki software to create web pages. They critically analyze a wide variety of media genres, including news, advertising, drama, music video, reality-TV programming, and online media. Children increase their confidence in using digital technology as tools for learning and develop the capacity to express ideas using language, image and sound, working in a collaborative team.
