What Digital Elder graduates say about their experience...
"This has the potential of a groundswell movement for reclaiming our youths' potential by connecting with them to motivate and inspire."
"This workshop empowers people to become more than themselves and take responsibility for each other."
I became a Digital Elder, I was unaware of the media history as it relates to
the African American community, and now that I am a Digital Elder, I am technologically savvy, gained literacy
in media knowledge, and I have a responsibility to myself, my community and our youth."
“Before I became a Digital Elder I felt distanced and apart from the text messaging blogging youth, and now that I am a Digital Elder, I at least understand how and why they communicate in this way and I’ve learned the terminology which facilitates my communication with them.”
The vision of Message Media Ed is to close the digital divide and increase leadership and innovation in the African American community -- ADVANCE.
