At last I think I have found a platform game that helps students meet the Learning Objectives of what I need to teach, (Media Literacy through understanding advertising and how students are targeted), whilst all being fun and engaging!
I want the students to understand:
– how they are targeted
– where advertising is (even when they don’t expect it)
– how all media is constructed
Its a free platform game which requires nominal sign up and has a male or female avatar explore different settings, e.g. out and about, home, school etc.
I even learnt some things about advertising through playing it!
I’m planning to use it on Wednesday. Am excited to see the students engage with it!
