Digital storytelling: A unique account of Namibian culture

Storytelling has always been an oral tradition in Namibia. The Oshiwambo, Otji-Herero, Nama/Damara and San cultures have used storytelling as a means to preserve their culture and to ensure continuity. This Paper discusses the implications of the digital preservation of culture, which has been, until recently, captured orally. The implications of such a tradition are evident and, therefore, need to be researched. It will further examine the nuances and ethos that become altered in the process of digitalization, which are important issues to consider in our technocratic society. Thus, as mass communication educators, we seek to provide some of the answers to the convergence of technology and storytelling. For instance, what is necessary for the culture to continue? What could be lost? What could be gained? These questions would help to facilitate discussions with Namibians in order to understand the impact of technology on storytelling.

Media_Literacy_Final_Report_-Phase_2.pdf

This document is intended for use in Jamaican Primary and Junior High Schools and comprises curriculum material for infusing media education within the existing school curriculum. 


The first phase of the media literacy project entailed the creation of materials (print and video) to be used in the instruction and training of Jamaican teachers and primary school children in media literacy. A package of four lessons, each designed for delivery within a twenty (20) minute class module, was designed and produced. 


As part of the second phase of the project, the Commission has worked with the JBTE to produce additional media literacy curricula for Grades 1-3 and Grades 7- 9 and to create a practical training component to assist grade 7-9 students in the establishment and operation of a school/community radio station.


A mentorship programme has also been designed to link each school/community radio station with a media mentor. A media literacy curriculum has been developed for primary and secondary student teachers in teacher training colleges and teachers already in service. Workbooks to accompany the modules for each grade group have also been produced. Among the JBTE recommendations which emerged from the pilot testing of the materials in phase one, was that the videos should be revised and updated. This was done as part of the second phase resulting in the development of 4 video scripts for grades 4-6. Finally, the Commission has incorporated the JBTE‟s recommendations for integrating the existing grades 4-6 media literacy curriculum into the primary school curriculum.

Broadcasting Commission Continues Media Literacy Project

Broadcasting Commission Continues Media Literacy Project | Media Literacy in Jamaica | Scoop.it

The Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica (BCJ) is set to roll out Phase III of its Media Literacy Project, being undertaken in institutions across the island. At the end of Phase III, the curricula of the media literacy project will be formally handed over to Ministry of Education.


Launched in 2007, the Media Literacy Project was conceptualised as a necessary intervention in dealing with problematic content in traditional and new media. It also seeks to address the need to empower Jamaican children, and by extension, the Jamaican society, in making use of media for personal and national development.

Students in Jamaica’s High Schools will benefit from a mix of formal methods with informal entertaining approaches to learning to stimulate the teaching/learning process and excite young minds to embark on a quest for knowledge. As the youths of Jamaica are already immersed in technology, the use of modern methodologies in the classroom is a natural move towards enhancing the learning process.

“DAGGERING” AND THE REGULATION OF QUESTIONABLE BROADCAST MEDIA CONTENT IN JAMAICA

“DAGGERING” AND THE REGULATION OF QUESTIONABLE BROADCAST MEDIA CONTENT IN JAMAICA | Media Literacy in Jamaica | Scoop.it

In 2008, a new style in Jamaican dancehall music and dance culture known as “Daggering” emerged. Daggering music and dancing, which included lyrics that graphically referred to sexual activities and a dance which has been described as “dry sex” on the dance floor, took Jamaica by storm. Unlike other dancehall traditions, however, Daggering went so main stream that both television and radio stations were airing audio and video recorded versions of the songs. The Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica was forced, because of the public controversy that evolved, to crack down on broadcasting and cable stations preventing them from playing any Daggering content. This article focuses on the subsequent clash between the government and the dancehall, and seeks to identify an appropriate method for monitoring and enforcing these new standards.
