In the fall of 2014 the Media Awareness Project began bringing the MAP Media Leadership Academy to all the schools we’re working with. The Media Leadership program teaches students to create a social awareness campaign through the use of digital media. Kiddos in each program self-select an issue they want to produce a campaign for and throughout the semester they use print media, website building, social media, video and photography to create their campaigns. At the end of the year all of our programs will participate in a community wide awareness day to show their work.
This is just one example of some of the thought-provoking work AISD kids did last semester with us:
