YMLN at NAA

As part of our new project, the Youth Media Learning Network, YouthLearn will be offering a workshop entitled "Youth Media, Civic Engagement and Critical Thinking" at next weeks' National Afterschool Association conference in Phoenix, Arizona. YouthLearn Director Tony Streit and YMLN Project Director Tim Dorsey will be co-facilitating. The session is scheduled for Thursday March 22nd at 10:00 AM. EDC will also have a booth in the exhibit area if you'd like to stop by and visit.

The workshop on youth media will feature examples of projects and give attendees the chance to engage in dialogue on how best to develop or strengthen their own programs. Tim and Tony will share tools and techniques for media making, taking into consideration limited resources, time constraints and the developmental stages of youth participants. Attendees will learn instructional techniques that support inquiry and problem solving, civic engagement, and other essential 21st century literacy skills. A concluding activity will be a self-assessment process to help attendees determine how best to move forward in the launch or advancement of their own youth media making efforts.
