    Media Literacy Portfolio

    Media Literacy Portfolio

    Overview

    This project would consist of students learning that their digital footprint can be used to assess their learning, ethics and habits. Students will be analyzing social media types and incidents that have occurred with social media.  This includes social media's impact on news, research and above all personal choices and representation.  Each student will be creating a digital portfolio with a technology representation of themselves that they would want others to see them as.  This portfolio would include goal setting charts, goal planning, examples of quality work areas of education and areas of interest  that they are curious about or would like to learn from.  This portfolio would follow the students through middle school and continue to the high school level as part of their senior portfolio and graduation requirements from the Eatonville School District.  This piece is intended to demonstrate that media placed in digital format is a representation of you and your work.  Students can use this for their benefit and to be taken as a 21st century learner.

    Media Literacy / Digital Citizenship Portfolio

    Lesson Plan and Resources

     

    Social media has become more than just a tool for teenagers to communicate with each other or parents to communicate about their children's exploits.  We see now more than ever, that media silos, public officials, educational institutions and more use social media to communicate philosophy, information and more.  Today potential employers, colleges and other establishments use social media to preview candidates,  Individuals use social media to target others for advertising, or other intentions.  In short, social media and the presence or lack thereof is now the calling card or new personalized business card in the 21st century.   This project will plant the roots of a digital footprint and its potential uses in a safe environment where mistakes and evaluation can occur.  Middle school age students begin to establish their identities in various ways.  As educators we can help them by guiding them into a proper and safe way to communicate that identity both with private and friend to friend communication and public communication.  

     

    This project is essential to other educators as well.  In a world where the career opportunities for the modern student will change at a faster rate than ever, the skills to have a personal and professional presence, to identify misinformation from others, and navigate digital media will be essential.  Many school related learning experiences focus on knowledge that needs to be gained, so that it can be applied. This project allows students to demonstrate their knowledge and market themselves to the world on their merits, interests, and goals.
