The Other Super Bowl: Commercials And The Power Of Student Voice

The Other Super Bowl: Commercials And The Power Of Student Voice | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it

As the week ended, many of our students were abuzz over the Super Bowl this Sunday, but not so much because of the game. It's the commercials. They love them, and we have fun deconstructing the multitude of advertisements each year on Monday after the game. It reinforces their media literacy skills and provides opportunities to broaden the discussion.

"Here’s one more Super Bowl analysis to motivate your students: 4 million dollars for 30 seconds of ad time.  That is how much a 30-second commercial costs during the 2014 Super Bowl.  Wonder how much it will be in the future?"
