  1. 1. Some of the resources provided by the Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood could be presented in the classroom. As a class, we could have discussions about the information given on the numerous fact sheets (http://www.commercialfreechildhood.org/resources-factsheets). For example, as students learn about strategies of persuasion, they can examine the marketing fact sheets.

    2. The Common Sense Media website has many resources for educators. The ”Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy” video explores how technology can be successfully integrated in the classroom (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/video/educators). It also provides links to games and other learning resources. For instance, there is a link to Digital Passport (https://www.digitalpassport.org/educator-registration), which is a website for students to learn about online safety via games. There are also videos to assist in discussion and learning about positive digital literacy/citizenship (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/curriculum).

    3. PBS supplies many great resources. I was intrigued to find classroom ideas within the page guided towards parents. For example, the “Preteen and Teen” section has a list of articles concerning children and media (http://www.pbs.org/parents/child-development/preteen-and-teen/). Two articles about “Children and Media Milestones” offer many points of discussion, as well as ways to “encourage [children] to use media in new and creative ways.” The “Creating with Media” articles provides additional input on how to be innovative with media. Furthermore, the “Advertising” articles can be used for discussions on the topic of persuasion and advertisements.

  3. I thought that this was a very interesting reading and all of the resources listed in the table can all be very useful. One of the resources that I would definitely use is the American Academy of Pediatrics. This website gives recommendations and resources that help families learn about what media is age appropriate for them. This would be a great resource to use for myself. I could use the website to learn more about the grade I am teaching so that I know what is appropriate. This would also be a great resource to give to parents if they are struggling with the media and their children. Another resource I would use from this table is PBS Parents. This website gives families advice on the dangers in media. This is another great resource I could share with my parents and my students. There are many dangerous things in the media and this website can help me inform me=y students and their parents.

  4. I believe that the resources listed in the table can be extremely useful for me as a future teacher. One resource is commercialfreechildhood.org. This website is not only beneficial for me but also for the parents of my students. I can inform the parents about this website so they know more about the technology use in the classroom. I also believe that pbs.org is a great website to view. It will not only inform me on the dangers of media content but also the parents. I can share this website with the parents so they can see how media is exposed to their children in a harmful way.

  5. I think that the pbs.org/parents would be a great site for myself and the parents of my students to look at. The site shows them the real danger that comes with immaturely and inappropriately using technology. Students need to learn not only in school, but also at home how to properly use technology to enrich their lives and learning abilities.

  6. PBS Parents is definitely one resource that I would use in my classroom, especially at the beginning of the year. It is important for the students and parents to be aware of the dangers of the internet and PBS Parents is a great resource to help. http://www.pbs.org/parents/

    Children Now would also be a great resource so that students would be aware of how media and using media effects there health. This website would allow them to use media, but also be aware of how it may effect there healthy lifestyle. http://www.childrennow.org

    Common Sense media is a third resource that would also be very useful to parents. It is a great site to help parents choose appropriate media for the family and their children. This is a great way for parents to become aware of what kind. of media to restrict or allow for their children and can also be used by teachers to restrict media for students. http://www.commonsensemedia.org

    The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation is an interesting website that I think would be beneficial to all new parents and some early education majors. This website and foundation focus on how media effects children ages zero through six. I would use this if I was an early education major. This would also be interesting to suggest to the students parents if they were interested or show to students in the middle school and then study how much exposure they had from those age ranges. http://www.kff.org

    1. For the website http://www.aap.org, I would use several of the different links to help my students understand different topics from the risks of tobacco use to injury prevention tips when the students are playing outside or inside. This could be a resource that the students could site if they were doing a project on a certain topic.

      I would also use http://www.childrennow.org for it addresses the impact of media on the students live. I think that if the students are aware of the impacts it will better help the to make their own choice to use it more wisely.
