Media Education and Events

Media Power Youth offers a variety of events around topics such as managing screentime, remote learning engagement, media creation, social media & mental health, and violence in the media. These events help educators, families, and youth alike gain the skills and knowledge they need to navigate the increasingly complicated media landscape and how to use media creatively to advocate for causes they believe in.  We provide professional training, family webinars, and youth workshops. Check out our current offerings below.

Virtual PD

 

Join us on August 25th to learn more about Media Power Youth’s newest project-based learning tool and discover ideas for engaging students in discussions about their favorite media. This online professional development session is exclusively for 4th and 5th grade classroom teachers and school administrators.

Media Power Youth has updated its foundational media literacy curriculum for upper elementary students, Media Literacy for Safe & Healthy Choices. This evidence-based educational resource contains lessons on how media/technology shape our wellness habits and attitudes while engaging students in a hands-on health fair project. The curriculum continues to address nutrition and substance use with new content on vaping and stress management. It includes traditional media examples such as TV advertising and packaging as well as social media, gaming, and news stories.

This online offering is currently free with support from the NH Department of Justice and donations from generous individuals, however advanced registration is required. Classroom teachers will receive free digital curriculum materials after the program.

We also provide online and in-person media education workshops for youth and parents. If you’d like to bring a program to your school, please contact [email protected] or call 603-222-2100.

Media Literacy Office Hours

Do you have a media literacy-related question? Do you need support using our resources? Just want to pick our brains about using media in your class or program? We’re happy to invite youth-serving professionals to our Media Literacy Office Hours via Zoom, on the first Monday of the month. You will have to register for each individual session, and do not have to stay for the entire hour and a half. Please reach out to [email protected] or 603-222-1200 with any questions.

Media Literacy Office Hours will be on hiatus through the summer. We look forward to speaking with you again in the fall!
