Intergenerational Media Literacy (IML) is back starting mid-January, but we’ll be doing a few things differently from last year. Maybe the biggest change is that we’re not going to just look at age discrimination in media against senior citizens, but against teens as well, who are often stereotyped in media as reckless, inconsiderate and unintelligent. We’re also going to build a multimedia awareness campaign about ageism in media, so participants can help educate other people about what they’ve discovered, and make a push for media producers to be more responsible about how they depict both seniors and teens.
More details are in the works, but we’re already getting very excited here at The LAMP about what 2014 holds in store for IML. If you’re a teen ready to take on media discrimination, learn new media-making skills and share your talents with others, then this is the program for you.
