Voices of the Media: How They Counteract SEL and How Media Literacy Can Help
Presenter: Julie Smith
The average American uses electronic media for 11+ hours a day
It’s not about the equipment; it’s about the message it’s sending
Who is the communicator of the message?
How is the message constructed?
How does it make us feel?
What is the content of the message?
Manifest vs. Latent
Who is the audience?
What patterns are there?

Rules for Brainstorming
Silliness, fun, and playing are encouraged. Make us laugh and take nothing personally. And, just like in Vegas, what happens here...stays here.
Participation by everyone is vital. No passive observers and no egos. Everyone is equal today.
Accumulate lots of ideas. Go for quantity-the quality will come later.
Write down everything; don’t let ideas escape.
Criticism and judgment are to be withheld. Every idea has merit-hopefully!
Stay focused! No cell phones, no wandering thoughts. Build on other people’s ideas.

Ask yourself, “How can I visually capture what is here?”
Steps to simple Sketchnoting
Start with basic shapes
Add simple details
Add details around the shape to clarify
A square could be easily turned into a box, a window, a present, a computer, etc.
A cloud could easily be turned into ice cream, a hedgehog, cotton candy, an ice cream cone, a sheep, etc.
