WEP 0047: Master the Media an Interview with Julie Smith

An Interview with Author Julie Smith

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 10.47.33 AMKelly interviews Julie Smith, the author of Master the Media: How Teaching Media Can Save Our Plugged-In World.

Julie Smith has been teaching media literacy at two St Louis universities for fifteen years. She’s been all over preaching about classroom engagement, using social media in the classroom, and the importance of teaching critical media consumption in all classrooms regardless of age. Her book ‘Master the Media’ is a great starting point for any teacher or parent interested in helping the young people in their lives become aware of the power and influence the media has over our entire culture.

Julie is also very interested in changing the higher education classroom paradigm and is known to “stir things up” in her classrooms. Determined NOT to be the ”sage on the stage” Julie uses all sorts of social media and apps within the classroom to give college students a voice as well as a reason to get out of their chairs.
