self reflection exercise:
How conscious are you of the influence media has on your everyday experience?
One of the main components to becoming a media literate digital citizen is understanding and reflecting on our own use of the media and how it impacts our life.
Reflecting upon our own emotional experience as we consume, use, and create media will help us to better understand our own engagement. What use creates joy or wellness? What use creates despair or frustration? What are the boundaries I need to set for myself?
Being conscious of and understanding the emotions that take over as we navigate our own media landscapes takes us one step closer to becoming media literate digital citizens. So please, take a moment and reflect.

Take one step towards becoming more aware of the digital forces impacting your life.
