Webinar on Media Literacy
The School arranged for a “Webinar” on 11th October 2017, on Media Literacy. The Webinar was organized by Dr. Samir Parikh, Chairperson, Fortis National Mental Health Programme. The governing message of the Webinar was – that it is impossible to escape the impact of media in the contemporary world. This interaction was aimed at gearing and equipping the students to critically evaluate and deconstruct the media message. Media whether Visual, Print or Online increasingly tampers with our mental health and it supremely vital for us to critically examine the accuracy of the portrayal of sensitive issues such as bullying, abuse because they may have direct impact on our psyche. Dr. Parikh distinctly discussed the fact that children must ‘tolerate’ themselves on ‘media culture’ specially Online Media, which they are very susceptible too. In a way he sermonized them on desisting from unwanted media concerns and that doing a ‘Digital Detox’ from time to time at regular intervals would be far more beneficial for their betterment and growth. Children should be able to balance their thought and if necessary they should not hesitate to talk about disturbing issues with their parents, teachers and authorities. Any harmful information on social media must be kept at bay. They should also dissuade from sharing their personal information online. The Principal Dr. Anita Puri and Manager Ms. Meena Malik were personally present during the broadcast to encourage students gain knowledge on media literacy and other online intolerant behaviour.
