Perhaps the most unique aspect of Media Aware is that it utilizes media literacy education to teach sexual education. Why? Media literacy engages students by harnessing their interest in popular media to have conversations and teach about topics that students sometimes find uncomfortable to discuss in school.
Media Aware seeks to deepen students’ understanding of the influence media has on their decisions and helps to develop their critical thinking skills related to media, sexual health, and relationship health. Media Aware is convenient for students, as it is accessed online and is completed on their own time, at their own pace.
