The goal of this presentation is to provide teaching strategies to educators of any grade or subject level on how to encourage and motivate young women to feel confident in creating, producing and directing media projects that interest them. In my experience teaching video production and digital media, I've noticed that girls will literally take a step backward when it comes time to direct, work with camera equipment or edit a project, while young men take a step forward. By taking a step back, young women miss the chance to create stories that highlight their interests and voices. In this session, I will provide strategies and activities that educators can utilize to motivate and empower young woman to feel confident in taking risks and creating content that interests them. Testimonials from previous female students will be shared on the importance of taking risks and leading a production team.
