A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection, not an invitation to hypnosis.
DigiURI Media Club | Exploring News Sources in the Classroom
In our next meeting we will explore using some digital content to teach news media literacy. Using Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe, (Season 2 Episode 4) an "Israeli military accused of using media to trick Hamas" (AP news, May 15, 2021) we will consider the relationship between journalists and official sources and brainstorm ideas for using these two pieces of content in the classroom. Join hosts Ralph Beliveau & Samantha Stanley for what is sure to be a great way to start lesson planning for the Fall. Bookmark Monday, August 2 at 12pm eastern to join the conversation!
