#MGMakeover: Social-Media Challenges
Teen participants from MEDIAGIRLS share online a series of weekly social-media challenges to inspire girls to use social media for positive change. Girls everywhere can join our challenges, along with our participants, and post their reflections online. MEDIAGIRLS aims to transform social media as a breeding ground of insecurity for girls, to a space where girls support and inspire one another.

As part of Media Literacy Week, join us to explore different aspects of media literacy in the age of social media. Three different programs of the day will target elementary, middle school, and high school audiences separately, all of them focused on the big picture question: How do we know what is real?
Each program will explore our big picture question in a variety of ways. This document provides information on the program targeted to elementary students. For our elementary program, our focus will be on determining facts from opinion, how to recognize each, and how to offer each to others. Our expert panelists will share information on the topic and answer student questions on the subject. We’ll invite schools joining us to share examples of online articles or posts dealing with facts and online articles or posts presenting opinion as models for others to discuss and evaluate, and we’ll invite all audience members to participate in activities to help us determine fact from opinion and an author or speaker’s purpose.
For information on our middle school and high school programs, please read those documents separately. More details on the elementary focused program are provided in the Program Format section later in this document.
How To View the Program:
People can join the program live in any of three ways:
1. Via videoconference–We have interactive and view only videoconference slots available for student groups to join the program. Groups interested in connecting this way can do so via a h.323 unit at their facility or through desktop VC software, such as Zoom, Vidyo, Skype, etc. We will need to test your connection using the IP address you’d use to connect on the program day. Interactive slots get face to face question and answer time with the program guests; view only slots can e-mail questions and comments during the program to firstname.lastname@example.org. These slots are limited and fill quickly so early enrollment is highly recommended. For videoconference participation, enrollment will open on October 6 and end on November 1. If you’d like to join us, contact us at email@example.com.
2. Via Internet–All our live, interactive programs are streamed live via our Educate.Today website, http://www.educate.today on the program day and our sister station http://www.hectv.org. For our Media Literacy programs on November 9, just go to either home page at the program time, and the program will run at the top of that page. In order to participate in the live chat or send us e-mail questions via the interface on our home page at http://educate.today, you will need to create a user ID and login.
Since many schools limit streaming video through their firewalls, we recommend testing your ability to view the stream prior to the program by watching any of our video resources at Educate.Today. We also recommend viewing the program live on one computer only and connecting that computer to a television, digital projector, electronic whiteboard, etc. for classroom viewing.
Viewers can e-mail their questions and comments during the program via the interface on the Educate.Today home page or by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To receive curriculum materials designed to help you prepare your students for the program, just e-mail us up to the day before the program at email@example.com.
3. Via Television–All our programs are available in the St. Louis metropolitan area on HEC-TV, Charter Communications digital channels 989 or 118-26. All our programs can also be seen on AT&T’s U-Verse channel 99. Students viewing in this way can e-mail their questions during the program to firstname.lastname@example.org. To view the show live on the program day, just turn on your TV to the appropriate channel at the scheduled time.
For Internet and TV viewing, there is no enrollment deadline date. We would appreciate knowing the time of the program you are watching and the grade level and amount of students involved, so we can forward that information to our program partners. Such information is extremely helpful in securing funding for more free, interactive, educational programs in the future. To let us know you’re viewing the program or to answer any additional questions about the program, please contact us at email@example.com.
Can’t join us live? No problem! All Educate.Today live programs are archived on our Educate.Today website (http://www.educate.today) for on-demand viewing at any time. Archives are usually up and running about a week after the program’s original airdate.
For our elementary age program, students will:
• be able to determine a fact from an opinion.
• be able to write a fact and opinion.
• identify author’s or speaker’s purpose (to entertain, to inform, to advertise, to persuade).
