DepEd to teach children how to be media savvy

By: abs-cbnNEWS.com

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Education (DepEd) is set to introduce a media literacy education curriculum that seeks to protect children from the negative effects of all forms of media.

“We believe that our young learners need to be protected from adverse media which they encounter everyday while in the process of acquiring information and entertainment,” said Education Secretary Mona Valisno.

The DepEd has created the Media Literacy Task Force (MLTF), which is tasked to develop a National Media Literacy Education (NMLE) curriculum that would help children understand and handle media.

“Our children need help in developing their skill to distinguish good news from bad news and good programs from bad ones,” she explained.

According to the Education Secretary, recent studies showed the prevalence of TV viewing among children and youth. It was also reflected in the 2009 study that 26% of Filipino children go online everyday, 50% of which use the internet for their homework.

The data came from Cartoon Network New Generations Philippines (2009), the 2008 AC Nielsen kids study and the 2002 PCTVF Media violence Study.

The NMLE is set to be integrated in the Basic Education Curriculum under Social Studies for the elementary level and under English/Communication Arts/Values for the high school level.

Teachers, school administrators, and peer educators will soon undergo training in preparation for the integration. Media learning resources will also be developed for use in public schools
