Navigating Youth Media
As the forward in this report states, "Young people are navigating their developing identities in the midst of tremendous social and technological change. They are increasingly relying on digital media to connect, learn, and play." This initiative is seeking to identify current media habits, gaps and ways media can better benefit youth.
This report is the first publication of an initiative called By/With/For Youth: Inspiring Next Gen Public Media Audiences. Media production by youth, with youth, and for youth describes approaches to engaging public media’s “missing audience” of tweens and teens who fall between content offerings for young children and adults. This literature review is a precursor to the full report, which will represent the ideas of a diverse group of youth ages 10-17 being interviewed at the time of this publication.
