MEDIA LITERACY SEMINAR 2017
Date: Thursday 26 October
Location: Westergas Theatre, Amsterdam
Time: 14.00 - 17.00
PROFESSIONALS CONFERENCE KIDS WILL BE KIDS, WON’T THEY…?
This year Cinekid is celebrating its 30th edition - an excellent moment to take a look at how storytelling has evolved, but also to assess how the audience has changed.
The media industry is continually changing. On the one hand kids will always have the same wants and needs no matter how much the world around them is transforming.
On the other hand, the changing communications landscape means that today children have different relationships with media.
As professionals in the kids media industry our goal is to create enticing and innovative ways to engage our audience via new content and products that push the limits of technology - at the same time not forgetting to take children seriously. Let’s ask ourselves the question: in the everchanging media landscape, kids will be kids. Won’t they…?
The rapid pace at which technology is changing is having huge effects on our cultures and relationships. At the same time a divide between generations is emerging because of this rapidly evolving media landscape.
Digital natives have different relationships with media than millennials and older generations. Children today are consuming, creating, dealing with and living in media in numerous other ways - we need to adapt to that.
Let’s bridge the generational gap by taking children seriously as makers, users and creative beings. What can we as professionals and educators learn from these young media makers and users?
During the Media Literacy Seminar we will be doing this by taking a fresh perspective.
What more do you need when you grow up with the whole world just a mouse click away, where there’s a (media) channel for every niche and where your birth language is merely one means of communication. Immerse yourself in an afternoon full of inspiring talks and workshops and ‘wake up’ with a new perspective.
