    *Agenda

    Naeyc TechYC Quarter Mtg. Topic: Media Literacy w/ Faith Rogow

    What Media Literacy Is and Isn't + Practical ECE Integration Strategies

    We'll look at how media literacy practice emerges out of the blending of traditional literacy and critical thinking (which is why it isn't focused on debates over screen time). I'll share some media literacy integration strategies that involve tweaks to common activities – you may be surprised at all the media literacy you already do! And, of course, we'll leave time for a lively Q&A.

          It would be helpful if folks would read ahead of time my chapter in Chip Donohue's Technology and Digital Literacy in the Early Years which is available here: http://teccenter.erikson.edu/in-practice/10medialitwk/   

           Additional thought-provoking resources are available at:

    What is media literacy, and why is it important? How can we help the young children in our programs learn how to be critical media consumers and content creators? What does this look like in your program?

    What concerns do families have about technology/media use by their young children and what kinds of information might be useful to share with them? What are some of the issues you encounter in your work, related to technology/media use?

    If, you believe  "... our job isn't to prepare children for our past. It's to get them ready for their future." ( Faith Rogold) please share your thoughts in this discussion thread and join the meet-up call on Thursday with Faith, members of the NAEYC Tech & YC Interest Forum group and others interested in exploring this important topic.

    Looking forward to hearing everyone's questions. My interest is in how we lay a foundation for reasoning and logic in developmentally appropriate ways that also acknowledge the realities of living in a digital world. Hint: It's not about finding the "right" apps. =: )  And FYI, if you want to learn how to craft a nutrition lesson that also tackles media literacy, join us!

    Posted 05-15-2018 11:03 AM
    Faith- am really looking forward to the conversation on Thursday.

    I found your chapter on media literacy in Chip Donohue's Technology and Digital Literacy in the Early Years (http://teccenter.erikson.edu/in-practice/10medialitwk/) thought provoking.

    Recently, in a PreK classroom, one of the children/family brought in an orange newt for the children to see. Since the children have been discussing homes, there was a conversation about where the newt lives. The teacher asked the children-how can we find out? A child replied "books"-this was the only suggestion.

    Considering your mention in the chapter of ways to model appropriate media use, wonder how many teachers of young children regularly model using the Internet to research questions that come up and how to select/consider reliable sources of information. Are there supports available in programs to offer this kind of experience (Internet access, etc?)

    Bonnie,   Thanks for posting this story! It's the perfect illustration of preparing children for our past instead of for their future. In pd workshops I actually ask people, "Where's the first place you would go to find an answer." Thirty years ago (and yes, I have been doing this for that long!!), people nearly always answered with a version of a book (the library, an encyclopedia, etc.). No one ever says that now. Ever. If I push for a list of places, books often comes up as #2, but for most people most of the time, no one ever pursues their question far enough to seek option #2.

    As I suggest in the chapter, the difference between media literacy and simple tech integration is that media literacy would help children learn to see and use all of their available options. So it might be a search engine, but it might also be book (which is media, after all) or a community member or institution (perhaps a parent or a local aquarium or university researcher). Kids lose out on so much when suggest – implicitly or explicitly – that the only valuable information is in printed books.

    The story also reminded me of a recent encounter with a school where administrators who knew very little about early childhood ed were swayed by anti-screen headlines, so they intentionally opted not to provide Internet access or computers in their preK or K classrooms – not even for the teachers. What a lost opportunity!

    Looking forward to a great conversation with the Tech Forum and other interested folks!

    I have been reading the posted comments on using technology in the early childhood setting with great interest. As a veteran teacher with more than 45 years in early education, I have embraced the use of technology for a myriad of reasons. For me it is important to remain current with innovations in the tech world that are applicable in the education setting. I find it necessary to step away from the idea of "screen time" and step up to the idea of interactive involvement with technology that is ever evolving. As a special educator, I have witnessed the excitement of nonverbal children using a tablet to effectively communicate through communication apps, the full participation of hearing impaired children viewing a YouTube story with ASL/ captioning. Virtual tours through museums to study the works of famous artists, listening to stories read by the authors themselves, researching topics in Goggle, creating works of art, dictating stories to document their products and enjoying repeating readings of e-books are a few of the advantages of exposing children to the diversity available in the internet world. As digital natives the majority of our children come to us with experiences using a smartphone/tablet to take photographs, select and maneuver through apps, check the time and weather and call friends. They are part of a world where technology use and competency are inherent to navigating everyday life and will be a necessity in the majority of their workplaces. To deny our younger children the digital literacy necessary to function successfully across environments is to deny them effective means of broadening their horizons. While books, hands on experiences and real life experiences will always dominate in early childhood programs, technology usage/access can provide an enriching dimension that crosses home/school/community boundaries.

    My apologies to all who tried to attend today's Tech and Young Children meet-up with Faith. We were hacked by people posting and saying incredibly offensive things, and had to end the meet-up early. We also will not be able to share the recording because of this hacking. We will find another way for those who are interested to interact around this topic, hopefully with less interference.

    On behalf of the interest forum, I'm so sorry this happened!

    Dear Hello Community--

    I want to thank the Interest Forum and Faith for organizing this online event and for shutting it down when the event was hacked.  We apologize to everyone who got on the call expecting a great discussion with Faith that was sidelined by materials and comments in that chat that do not reflect our values.  We are working on ways to prevent this from happening again at our online events.

    The forum will try to reschedule the event once we have determined a more secure way to host it.

    Please share any concerns you have with us at hello@naeyc.org.

    best,

    Posted 05-30-2018 07:55 AM
    Thanks Lynn for the good news that a recording of What Media Literacy Is and Isn't + Practical ECE Integration Strategies is now available here https://psu.zoom.us/recording/play/Qpeqikmf0S3kcV2S-l4b3Ebr7ChYoJE66E1ipEvnY-qWJIG0XilYPlbjVuypPHoY, and to Faith for making this thought-provoking presentation available. And for agreeing to offer a follow-up session for those with additional questions after viewing the video and/or, about media literacy.

    It was interesting to learn more about theory, what is media literacy, and what might that look like in practice/ in early learning settings. To consider how to provoke conversations and offer activities that are designed not to tell children what to think, but How to think, and develop skills they can use independently/when adults are not there to provide guidance.

    The close connection to inquiry, starting with children's questions and helping them learn to find answers, attaching opinions to evidence, is so relevant to early learning. And the extension of this kind of critical evaluation/thinking to help children carefully consider books and stories, and the various types of media/information they will encounter. To understand there are choices made in how media is created, and what to pay attention to.

    The Key Questions to Ask When Analyzing Media Messages (adapted for early childhood) included in the chapter Faith wrote, available for free online http://teccenter.erikson.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Rogow_MediaLiteracyREV-copy.pdf can help children think about who created the media, what was their purpose (want does this want me to do), etc. The grid provided offers food for thought /suggestions that can help children better understand media they experience during early learning activities and in life, such as becoming aware of how food packaging and advertisements are created.

    Also wanted to thank @Karen Thomes for sharing reflections/viewpoint on this topic, from your many years of teaching preschool/young children. Find your comments, including "To deny our younger children the digital literacy necessary to function successfully across environments is to deny them effective means of broadening their horizons." so important to consider as we strive to help children navigate in today's world and support their future success.​
