Emerson Faculty and students will be conducting a workshop with the newly launched civic media literacy toolkit, Civic IDEA. Civic IDEA is a media literacy intervention to help build the capacity of youth to be more engaged citizens through the creation and distribution of media. Civic IDEA incorporates accessible technologies and a focus on connecting critical inquiry with active engagement in daily life. Youth who engage with the IDEA framework will learn to identify and investigate issues, deliberate around their values, express alternative narratives to current messages, and advocate for communities and issues that matter. In this event, we will use Civic IDEA to expand the capacity of media literacy to exhibit civic intentionality.
