This paper documents processes and responses regarding a Children’s Media Literacy Pilot Project, a six-month venture involving selected Jamaican teachers college faculty, student teachers, and schoolteachers and their students. The project was geared at exposing children to materials created to promote responsible responses to the burgeoning media possibilities available at children’s disposal. The project configuration where viable alliances were formed between teachers colleges, schools and organizations is described. The implementation experiences with an emphasis on the role and concerns regarding ICT are discussed. Findings suggest that media education and ICT are closely linked. Recommendations are made for improving educator competencies with ICT as well as boosting the ICT resources in schools.
