Students commonly produce media projects for their class work, and certainly, most students are active producers in every-day life through social media.
But to be media-literate producers, students need to know and understand the Core Concepts and Key Questions of media literacy, and how to apply these Concepts and Questions to construction, so that they are critical producers. It is with this challenge in mind that CML developed Questions/TIPS (Q/TIPS), so that students and teachers alike could have ready access to a critical production framework, and develop assessment tools that relate to media literacy basics.
insightful and innovative messages, both print and electronic, that young people have created using the powerful multi-media tools now at their command.
Some examples of Student-Made Media are contained in CML's YouTube channel (see button above to right). If you or your students care to add to this collection, please contact CML.
