In a world dominated by screens, an important component of becoming media literate is to create screen media. This dynamic program explores new approaches to media literacy by looking at Rosebud Institute hands-on courses. Focusing on how the creation of digital films and ePortfolios relates to the evolution of screen media, Rosebud programs teach how to use simple, accessible technology and address why the importance is growing in a screen-based world. This expanding program is explored – its successes, challenges and significance as technology education grows. Offered to adults and young students, participants create small, relevant movies, using basic cinematic language. Relatedly, students create online ePortfolios, learning to manage and appropriately present their digital selves. The creation process enables deeper, more authentic learning, allowing us all to communicate more effectively, to self assess more reflectively, and to thrive in a screen-based world.
