Free Resource for Teachers

ThisIsMedia2As part of Pivot’s Eyes Wide Open digital and media literacy initiative, the National Association for Media Literacy Education has teamed up with the network to ensure that This Is Media is seen throughout classrooms nationwide to spark conversation about media, credibility, and privacy in a digital age.

This is Media is a fresh look at our role in today’s media landscape as consumers and makers. Including compelling interviews with digital pioneers, this documentary reveals the balancing act between being connected, responsible, and private.

NAMLE and Pivot are providing educators with free DVD copies of the television special as well as an accompanying classroom discussion guide that offers several ways to engage learners in asking critical questions about their own media worlds,

Request a free DVD copy of This Is Media for your classroom here. For more interactive resources and to take action on the issues explored in the television special, visit www.takepart.com/eyes-wide-open.

And to learn more, feel free to contact a NAMLE representative with any questions you have about the video or preparing a screening with your faculty, colleagues, and students: thisismedia@namle.net.

We look forward to hearing from you!
