Give the gift of media literacy in 2010!

By December 15, 2009 News No Comments
Media literacy can change lives.
Each week, the average youth watches a full 24 hours of television. Recent studies show that without skills to think critically about media like TV, young people are more likely to smoke, become obese and do worse in school. When you donate to The LAMP, you invest in our programs bringing free media literacy training to hundreds of New York City youth, parents and educators.

“I hope we have more awesome experiences like this!”

Digital Remix students“This workshop was an awesome experience because we learned how to use iMovie and how to edit commercials…
We learned how to use sound, text, pictures, movies, and special effects on iMovie to create a remix of the commercials. [LAMP Education Director] Katherine [Fry] was talking about a special program called The LAMP (Learning About Multimedia Project) where she taught us about how commercials have hidden messages and how some can lie to persuade people to buy their product…I thank everyone in MOUSE Sqaud for an awesome experience on that day. I hope we have more awesome experiences like this!”
