Many library professionals feel overwhelmed by the fast pace of media development and unprepared to advise parents about their children’s digital media use. Navigating Screens provides tools for developing effective services relating to families and digital media. This webinar introduces the Navigating Screens project tutorials which are available for free use on Niche Academy.
The webinar features overviews of three Navigating Screens tutorials:
- Flipping the Script: Changing the Narrative about Children & Media provides an overview of some of the ways U.S. parents view children’s relationships to digital media and offers ideas for helping parents manage and guide children’s media use.
- Guiding Family Media Use: Every Family & Community is Different guides learners through the evaluation of three common models of children’s media use and suggests methods for supporting families in culturally-relevant ways.
- “Can You Help Me?” A Media Advisory Interview Guide teaches learners about media advocacy in youth information services and guides them to conduct a media advisory interview.
Navigating Screens was made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and is a joint research project of the University of Wisconsin, Drexel University, and the University of Oklahoma.
