The Global Kids Digital Expressions program, originally called Media Masters, worked with young people to foster the acquisition of digital media production and analytic skills through youth engagement in participatory media or “Web 2.0” tools. Participants used web tools to map, remix, blog, create multimedia presentations and slideshows, do graphic design, create data visualizations and more in order to gain critical social skills and cultural competencies that will be critical to their participation in civic life. In its first iteration, Media Masters, the program was a partnership with MIT’s Project New Media Literacies in which Global Kids brought its global issue oriented and interactive educational approach to MIT’s new media literacy Learning Library, running the program within the Prospect Heights Campus in Brooklyn, NY. The program was later expanded to serve youth in libraries around New York City in a partnership with the New York Public Library.
