We are Out of The Box, a non-profit, non-government organization advancing media literacy in the Philippines. Established in 2014, OOTB has already made considerable achievements in creating unique educational programs and learning resources for students and educators from all over the country.
Our mission is to promote critical thinking and make skills of expression relevant in the 21st century. This is the very action plan of many educational institutions worldwide that we wish to address in our country through media literacy.
#OOTB MEDIA LITERACY PRIMER
Our OOTB Media Literacy Primer contains facts about the ownership of Philippine media and Filipinos’ access to them, issues of the local press, and concepts on analyzing media messages, among others. We find these information to be helpful in understanding the language and power of media. Our primer is suitable for both students and teachers.
#OOTB MEDIA LITERACY WORKSHOPS
The Media Literacy Workshops (MLW) is our banner program. It caters to both high school and college students. We have devised unique and targeted modules and activities that cover the business of media, news and digital literacies, advertisement persuasion techniques, and deconstructing the media, among others.
