Grow. Create. Be.

October 13, 2009

In FlowTV,  Christine Quail of McMaster University relates an internship she supervised over the summer with undergraduate student Laura Knox. Grow. Create. Be. was designed as a media literacy project for young girls aged 10-13 around issues of media, gender and identity. Girls journaled about their media experiences and participated in workshops. As Quail commented,

“Bonding is the stuff of girl culture. Which drives home the point that while of course there’s a necessity for media literacy programs to integrate Web 2.0 materials and technology, video and audio projects, even something as basic as a take-home journal and sitting around for a chat, can make small steps towards critical thinking about identity and media.”
