Empowering Critical Relationships with Media

Session 3
Douglas Herman and Josh Weisgrau — Rough Cut Schools

For the first time, the American Academy of Pediatrics’ guidelines about children’s screen time have changed to acknowledge a distinction between “entertainment” screen time which should be limited, and educational and "active" screen time that can be beneficial. There is a place and means in every grade and subject area to help students become more thoughtful consumers and creators of media. This conversation will leverage the collective wisdom and varied experiences of the attendees to help us all better define empowering media experiences for our students.

Conversational Practice

This conversation will be guided by Josh Weisgrau and Douglas Herman of Rough Cut Schools, as well as current and former SLA students who have made the critical leap from consumers to creators of media.

Rough Cut Schools hopes to inspire a critical and creative approach to consuming and creating media for all students that will lead to an empowered relationship with media in an overwhelmingly mediated society.
