BCJ 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.

Newton Connecticut Mass Shooting-KiDz HuB Media Network's 16 Y-O President , Kennedi Williams Libert send condolences.

But a large part of my responsibility also entails representing children without a voice and that's exactly what I have to do today...
KiDz HuB Media Network's insight:

http://www.spreaker.com/user/kidzhub/condolences_mp3_2

 

Good afternoon everyone,

 

This is Kennedi, President of The KiDz HuB Media Network.

 

 

Normally as president, I have the chance to share with you all, very exciting news about KiDz HuB, updates about giveaways and more information about the Book KluB that I host. But a large part of my responsibility also entails representing children without a voice and that's exactly what I have to do today.

 

 

As everyone knows, yesterday brought with it unspeakable, overwhelming tragedy. A school, the place of learning, growth and essentially promoting life, especially of young ones, was massacred by a man with a gun, losing the lives of 20 children and 6 adults.

 

 

On behalf of KiDz HuB, our thought and prayers go out to their families, the children themselves, those who survived, the school and its community.

 

I would also like to take the moment to ask, personally each and every one of our listeners to continue to pray for those families and to remember that you live with a purpose.

 

 

Thank You

After taking pictures and sharing it with 14 year-old, Charlie, our newest junior broadcaster, he he got very exicited and thought that this would be just the thing he would like to learn...pottery. Not only does Charlie want to learn pottery, he would like to produce and present a radio show talking about his experience, as he is learning pottery. 

"I think it would be so cool to meet someone who can teach me this skill." he said as he express his excitement to Uncle Lanze.

 

Whether Charlie gets to learn pottery, or not, the KiDz HuB Media Network is now on a mission to make his dream a reality. 

 

Please log onto www.artbabespottery.com support Shelley's Preposterous Pottery. Let her know we sent you and while you are at it, let her know that Charlie would like conduct an interview with her.

Broadcasting Commission Takes Media Literacy to the Western Jamaica | Jamaica Information Service

Broadcasting Commission Takes Media Literacy to the Western Jamaica | Jamaica Information Service | Kids Sound Off | Scoop.it

The Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica (BCJ) took its media literacy programme to western Jamaica on Wednesday, March 6, staging the first in a series of three sensitisation and awareness sessions in the region, at the St. James High School in Montego Bay.

 

Some 300 students benefitted from the session, addressed by Assistant Executive Director of the Commission, Karlene Salmon Johnson, where they were educated on how to make use of traditional and new media, such as social networking sites, for personal development.

 

Mrs. Salmon Johnson, in her presentation on the topic: 'Managing Your Digital Self', told the students to be careful about what they post online and to consider the implications of what they share.

 

She noted that “from the moment you have an email address, Facebook page, Twitter handle, a blog, it means that you have created a digital version of yourself, and you want to make sure that no one hijacks this or takes it away and uses it for nefarious purposes, such as scamming and related activities.”

On November 11, 2012, the Manasquan Warrior cheerleaders, Pee-Wee Jr. Squad made history for Manasquan Pop Warner cheer! They competed in Trenton against all Junior Pee Wee’s from the Central Division of the Eastern Region to advance to the Regional competition.

 

The team tied for 2nd place. Hooray! Way to go girls! Their scores were significant enough to the Nationals. It was the 1st time their division made it to Regional competition. During the week leading up to the competition, the Warriors worked hard at practice. That evening, they traveled to Trenton by bus for their last competition.

 

Although they didn't place first or second to advance to Disney, they made a super effort! According to one team member, Talialee O’Reilly, “It was a little sad, but we had a lot of fun. Next year I know that we will make it to Disney”.

 

On Tuesday, November 23, 2012, the Warrior Cheerleaders will cheer during half time at 76er’s vs. Dallas Mavericks basketball game in Philadelphia, PA. Be sure to follow the team’s progress and related activities on KiDz HuB Media Network's Flagship Station, KZUB, on the web. www.KidzHuB.org

Joshua's Heart Foundation Founder & KiDz HuB Jr. Broadcaster, Joshua Tells Why He Cares?

Joshua's Heart Foundation Founder & KiDz HuB Jr. Broadcaster, Joshua  Tells Why He Cares? | Kids Sound Off | Scoop.it

When we met Joshua for the first time, he changed the way we saw the world. He made us realize that children are not too small to do BIG things. By demonstration and determination he stood up for many - many who were less fortunate than himself. Joshua, at only four years understood, from the depths of his heart and soul what it meant to care for his fellowman.

 

Today he has transferred his passion and love for selfless acts of kindness, to many, who have joined him  to fight hunger, across the world. He has challenged many, children and adults alike, to stand up and fight for those who can't, to speak out for those who have no voice and to feed those who are hungry.

 

Joshua, today we hail you  because you are a true leader and an inspiration to many. Now, we believe that the ripple effects of the compassion in your heart will change the world, and continue to bring healing to broken hearts and empty lives. Your heart, will make the world a better place. 

 

You are our Hero, Role Model, and our pick to the KiDz HuB Hall of Fame.
