'Olelo's Partnership Efforts with Teachers and Youth: More than Media Literacy
Angel, Angela
Educational Perspectives, v38 n2 p38-42 2005
'Olelo Community Television has served the O'ahu community for over 16 years. It offers community members training in television production, and it provides access to Oceanic Cable channels 52 through 56--the five cable channels that 'Olelo currently manages. 'Olelo is a non-profit, public, educational and government (PEG) access organization that seeks to create a foundation for the exchange of ideas. 'Olelo's mission is to build stronger, healthier, more engaged communities based on the principle of free speech and through the use of cable television. Over the past four years, 'Olelo has partnered with schools and the University of Hawai'i to operate media centers in a variety of diverse communities. It has helped to establish nurturing educational environments where Hawai'i's youth, teachers, and community members can join together to learn about the power of television in communicating ideas. 'Olelo's community media centers and special services such as 'Olelo's Summer Media program and the statewide "Youth Xchange" Video Competition have created new opportunities for students to learn media literacy. As a result, access to these empowering tools is at an all-time high.
