Program: “Media Awareness”
Duration: Three hours
Program Description: A three-hour session with parents/Guardians (during card-giving days) – which will deepen their perception and understanding of media’s impact, thus, empower them to educate their children towards critical autonomy.
1.To provide parents/guardians with the basic understanding of how the media can effect behavioral changes in children.
2.To offer practical guidelines for critical awareness and evaluation of media images in the light of Christian values.
Expected Outcome: Given the opportunity to gain more knowledge and skills on how to become more critical, creative and responsible media consumers, they could very well serve as our partners in the formation and media education of today’s children.
