About: This year the annual Media Literacy Week, co-led by MediaSmarts and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF), will take place the week of November 5-9. This year’s theme, ‘Privacy Matters’, highlights online privacy knowledge and skills for youth.
As part of the celebration, the Digital Literacy Project is happy to host video documentary by Giuliana Cucinelli (director, co-producer, writer), Postdoctoral Fellow at the Mobile Media Lab (Concordia University and York University) and Professor Leslie Regan Shade (co-producer, writer, research consultant), Associate Professor at the University of Toronto in the Faculty of Information.
Our Privacy Matters! Youth, Identity, and Online Sociability is a short video documentary that brings forward the voices of Canadian youth and media educators. It is designed to serve as both an introduction to the various issues related to privacy, social media and youth and also serve as a provocation for youth to become more involved in not only shaping the social media landscape but in educating policymakers about their insights and concerns about online privacy.
The video was also made with the many talents of Concordia students: Anthony Korkidakis, Rob Lynch, Cynthia Wong, Tamara Shepherd.
