The Thames Valley District School Board's Critical Media Literacy Committee welcomes
the public to a free presentation that explores the pervasiveness of media in our
lives and in the lives of our youth.
"This is a great opportunity for adults to gain a deeper understanding to help provide
perspective for our young people living in today's cyber world," says Learning Coordinator
The presentation, offered at locations across the district, will provide 10 tips
to help adults help the children in their lives manage the pervasive use of media.
Participants will receive current information on a variety of topics, including:
Facebook, "sexting", video games, digital footprint, literacy, anonymity and privacy.
TVDSB media violence teacher experts will lead this dynamic presentation. They are
part of the Critical Media Literacy Committee where they network with media savvy
teachers to develop and deliver informative media literacy presentations to parents,
students and teachers.
