Media Literacy

Contributed by artist Larry Schulte

The NoMoNo team was talking about ideas for our election coverage in early August: The potential for violence, attempts to subvert the vote and the importance of media literacy. It is not hyperbole to state that for most of us, this is the most important election we have ever taken a part in. That said, it is imperative that we are not only informed about our voting rights, but we ensure they are protected. That means becoming savvy about misinformation and disinformation and the ways that you and some people you may know are possibly being manipulated.

The Children's Hour, Sat 6/8 9a: How much screentime is too much for kids? This week on The Children's Hour we explore digital devices, addiction, and kids. Our crew discuss their own use of screens, and what they think about how they use their devices.  Dr. Kristina Sowar visits our studio to answer our questions about the mental health impacts of screentime on kids. We also hear from technology pioneer Dom Sagolla who has advice for kids about self control and screens.   It's all in an hour! Broadcasting on KUNM Saturdays from 9 to 10am.
