New Web Publication on Youth Media Making

The YouthLearn team recently completed work on a new publication as part of our Learning Resource Center for the National Science Foundation's ITEST (IT Experiences for Students and Teachers) program. It was our attempt to look at the intersection between the worlds of youth media and informal science learning. Here's an overview and a link to the site:

Fostering Media Savvy STEM Learners

What is the relationship between the development of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) skills and the need for new 21st century literacy? In this latest ITEST LRC web publication experts from ITEST projects and the field of media studies explore this and other related questions on media making via a roundtable discussion. In conversation with LRC Co-PI Tony Streit, a media educator and co-founder of a leading Chicago-based youth media organization, the roundtable participants discuss what constitutes youth media making, the skills needed to be savvy media consumers and producers, and what educators need to know to facilitate the process. Samples of media products from ITEST projects are featured throughout.

As always, please let us know what you think of this resource!
