We are excited to announce that Emily Bailin has joined The Media Spot!
Rhys was recognized for six years of service on the Board of Directors for the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) at the 2015 NAMLE Conference in June.
TGC brings together kids and elders as campers — guiding them into learning expeditions in nature and the local community. Without demanding any particular result, the camp has found that immersing diverse groups in collaborative activities leads to positive intergenerational exchanges. TMS stokes interactions between young and old by facilitating intergenerational camper directed documentary videos on their travels.
TMS facilitated media productions with 75 students from 13 countries at the Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change in July.
Media literacy curriculum planners will gather from nine New York City Schools, led by Rhys Daunic and Kwaku Aning from The Media Spot, with support from Renee Hobbs and Jonathan Friesem from the University of Rhode Island’s Media Education Lab.
