I" Take a Medium, Please… Did you think I meant French fries or a diet coke? Or did you think I just fell into the Gap to buy a new t-shirt?
Media plural of Medium is all around you! Young Media Critics continue to discuss, analyze, evaluate, examine and comment on the various forms of media and the messages communicated to us every day.
Join Young Media Critics on Blogtalkradio.com, Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 5:00 p.m (EST) as they introduce the Media Literacy Five Core Concepts. Today's episode combines last week's Media Literacy Five Key Questions to "pull back the curtain" on media messages!
Join the Young Media Critics on Tuesday, July 1, 2014, 5 p.m. EST, as they talk with Frank W. Baker, media literacy education consultant and author about the importance of medial literacy education to children, parents and other concerned adults who work with young people.

Young Media Critics...voicesof the future joined Blogtalk Radio in 2009. Our first show we had as guest, Frank W.Baker, renowned media literacy educator and claimed by "Miss Juanita" -adult co-host of Young Media Critics as her mentor. We learned about media literacy and how to teach no only the children but their parents, guardians and other concerned adults.
It is four years later, let's talk about what is happening in Media & Digital Literacy Education. Are we making progress? Standing still or regressing? Join us on Thursday, 5 p.m. and get the update or "the 411".
Curtain Call Unlimited…Advocates for Media Literacy is new in the world of media literacy however we feel strongly about the importance of media literacy and media education. Our young people must be skilled at “reading” media messages which come in all forms.
While our primary focus is to teach young people, we are also concerned that all citizens are able to question, analyze, evaluate and create media messages as well. So we agree with many of the experts and advocates who see and know the need for media literacy for adults too.
Our special guest will be Suzie Boss. Suzie is a regular contributor to Edutopia and the Stanford Social Innovation Review and a member of Buck Institute for Education National Faculty. Join us to discuss Media Literacy.. Not Just for Kids on Monday, August 6, 2012 at 4 p.m.
Often times we take for granted just how important technology literacy is in our personal, professional and academic lives. For example, I am a diabetic and therefore it is very important for me to monitor my glucose levels; I use Microsoft Excel to track my glucose readings, the times at which I take my glucose readings, the food that I have eaten that day and I also track the highs, lows and averages for the week. I even have charts and graphs to display trends in a pictorial way. Tracking this information allows me to make any necessary changes to my diet, exercise routine and the occasional treat - a piece of "real" lemon cake (not sugar free). That is just one of many ways that I use technology to help me on a personal level. It is only through knowing about Microsoft Excel and spreadsheets that I would have known to use this program to help me with my health.
Listen in to learn more about the different Microsoft Office Suite applications (that you probably already have on your computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone) and some of the ways you can use them personally, professionally and academically.
Join me as I discuss the importance of technology and computer literacy for today’s student especially in online learning environments. This particular topic is very special to me as my wife, Renee Burgher, has returned to college and currently attends Phoenix University in pursuit of her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. All of the academic projects and assignments she submits for grading are completed using either Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint or Microsoft OneNote; learn how she uses the other applications to stay organized and manage the academic part of her life. Listen in so you will know how to maximize the use of these tools, whether for yourself or for a significant other, to ensure academic success.
The Young Media Critics…voices of the future made a few changes in the program. They will kick off the 2014-2015 season talking about media, literacy, digital messages and more with the Young Media Co-hosts.
Our show is based on “The Inquiry Process/ Free your Mind/Express Your View”-components of media literacy and media education as defined by The Center on Media Literacy (www.medialit.org ). It is not a show to bash the media.
The Young Media Critics Co -Host will share with the listeners how their lives are influenced by the media messages that surround them every day.
Please join me as I share the results of my professional quest to research the importance of technology and computer literacy for entrepreneurs and new small business owners. As a solo-preneur myself I have truly benefited from maximizing the benefits of technology and computers when it comes to equalizing the playing field with my competition. As a result of this journey, I have re-focused my training & consulting efforts to educate entrepreneurs and small business owners on how to become more efficient, effective and productive users of technology with a strong focus on the Microsoft Office Suite of applications. After-all, how can you ignore this statistic….according to Microsoft, 1.1 billion people (or 1 in 7 people on the planet) use Microsoft Office. I am quite sure that a significant percentage of these users includes entrepreneurs & start-up small business owners. If you currently use Microsoft Office or have been thinking about purchasing the suite of applications, then you don’t’ want to miss this broadcast on learning more about how Microsoft Office Suite applications can be applied to your business!
