The Media History Timeline (MHT) is an interactive timeline tool developed from Global Action Project’s unique political education, media production and youth development curriculum. GAP youth explored interaction design and new media software to develop this online resource for organizers and educators that explores the relationships between media, social justice, public policy, and popular culture. Youth learned the basics of web development, group decision-making, app development and planning, media literacy, research planning and implementation, and developing data systems. The group is developing a prototype web-based interactive timeline to be shared widely in the program’s third year.
