Teaching about internet and media content.

 

The video ‘Greenwashing- The Media Show’ is intended to inform children of how ‘greenwashing’ is implied by mainstream companies like BP. Their strategies for advertisement induce people to think that the company is aware and acknowledging the environment by being ‘environmentally friendly’ whereas in reality, they are not.

The purpose of this video is not only to engage and inform children about ‘greenwashing’ but is intended to engage a younger audience and bring attention to the misleading messages and false interpretation that is often manipulated by the media. In terms of what this video means for teaching children about internet and media content is that we as teachers need to know and ensure that our students realise that easily accessible and often very useful information from the internet is not always reliable.
