CI3036/COMM3036: Children's Media as a Tool for Social Justice


Children’s media has the power for transformation.  In this course, students will gain knowledge and skills to responsibly access, evaluate, consume, and create media messages in a networked world to empower themselves and others.  Through evaluation of digital media, students will explore how the media and the youth audience socially construct meaning together about categories of race, class, gender, region, and sexuality.  With an application of design and learning theory, students will develop purposeful digital media content that aims to reach the hearts and minds of youth for the power of good.
