Yearbook: Digital Life 101

You will need headphones today.

Digital media generally allow people opportunities for interactive communication — for creation and self-expression. Instant Messaging, for instance, is more “two-way,” because people are talking with one another. Media such as TV and radio are generally more “one-way,” because people generally do not interact with one another through these technologies. Innovations in digital media enable us to create, share, and communicate in addition to consuming media.

You are going to watch a video about how digital media are a 24/7 part of our culture –  video game consoles and portable devices, such as cell phones, seem to surround us. The media lives of all kids and families are not the same. Some kids are allowed to use more digital media than others, and some kids like these tools more than others.

Watch this video: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/video/modal/2078096

CREATE a concept map on http://creately.com/ that contains the following headings: “Types” of digital media, “Actions” students take with digital media, “Your Feelings” about digital media, and “Your Parents’ Feelings” about digital media. See the example Mrs. Pierce handed out.  Print out your concept map.

Fill out the My Media Life Is Like … Student Handout where you will create and illustrate a simile about their digital lives. Turn this in.

EXTENSION ACTIVITY
Turn your similes about digital life into an Animoto video. You can work in pairs to create a simile video about your digital lives. I would like at least ten images and slides with words telling us about your digital life.  The first slide should have your simile on there.
