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
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.
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.
Since January of 2014, I have gone on a personal and professional quest to research the importance of technology literacy in the workplace...and it truly amazes me how individuals today still take for granted the importance and necessity of technology literacy skills in the workplace. I came across article after article about the importance of being computer literate in the workplace, the importance of basic computer skills and the importance of computers skills as an office professional. Therefore I am re-focusing my training & consulting efforts to educate individuals on how to become more efficient, effective and productive users of technology with a strong focus on the Microsoft Office Suite 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. Today’s broadcast will discuss how the very applications that sit on desktops at many places of work offer individuals more options and a greater ability to become successful employees in the workplace…the catch is enhance one’s technology skill sets, identify the issues and obstacles they face, and to begin integrating these new skills sets with the experience each individual possesses to minimize, if not, eliminate these obstacles.
I am starting with the workplace during this broadcast and I will discuss how to achieve e-squared-p at home, professionally, and academically on future broadcasts. So stop by my web site, www.tabtraining.com, or lookup TABRadio here on BlogTalkRadio.
