MediaLit Moments are short, focused lessons for middle school and high school students teaching important AHA! concepts leading to an understanding of the use of social media. Each experience consists of key questions related to core concepts using video and online materials and activities for students to explore the topic taught. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable; be sure to look at alternatives for sharing the videos on classroom computers. Find an alternative here.

Stop as needed to add questions, comments, or highlight important information. You may want to replace the verbal discussion and use a video tool such as Vizia, reviewed here, to embed questions, comments, and polls into the videos.

Ask students to create blogs sharing their thoughts and research using an easy blogging tool like Telegra.ph, reviewed here.
