Blueprint for 21st Century Civic Engagement

The Media Education Lab at Temple University announces the release of its "latest multimedia curriculum, developed in partnership with PBS Teachers, just in time for Election 2008: ACCESS, ANALYZE, ACT: A Blueprint for 21st Century Civic Engagement.

This curriculum is designed to help develop students' understanding of the Presidential campaign process by harnessing the power of Web 2.0 for teaching media and information literacy, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and technology skills. There are more than a dozen social media tools showcased in this curriculum that can engage young learners in the political process. Teachers will gain confidence in using social media for student learning when viewing these videos and using these lesson plans.

Start by visiting the Blueprint page to get a big picture perspective on the curriculum. Then, watch three video modules for teachers on the Access, Analyze and Act pages that showcase how teachers can integrate social media tools into the teaching and learning processes. Students can explore an interactive Quiz to measure and reflect upon their civic engagement. The full Curriculum Guide includes nearly a dozen high-interest lesson plans that incorporate Web 2.0 tools to promote civic engagement and 21st century skills."
