Applied Learning Programme in Media Literacy
Today’s students operate in a media-saturated environment. Time spent consuming media, is constantly on the rise. It is thus necessary that students are equipped with the critical thinking and analysis skills that they require to successfully analyse and understand different media messages and formats.
The media literacy programme at KCPSS is designed to develop in KCPians a nuanced thinking about media messages, as well as the messages creators and their goals and values. The programme aims to equip KCPians to be responsible consumers and producers of media as well as effective participants in the media world.
• Control the interpretation of what they see, hear or interact with.
• Express views or communicate messages using a range of media forms.
• Raise the right questions about what they watch, read, listen or contribute to.
The Spin Doctors programme focuses on equipping students to be more media literate by leveraging on media literacy tools to hone their speaking and writing skills.
Students are given platforms to hone and showcase their talents through enrichment workshops, speaking and writing competitions and hosting of school events.
