Fostering Accountability: Media Literacy in the Classroom

May 28, 2019 ♦ 7:00pm - 8:30pm ET

Session Description: As digital media increasingly replaces traditional media, students must have the skills to think critically about these new types of texts. Media literacy – the ability to skillfully read and write in a wide range of message forms – allows students to identify themes and issues emerging from popular culture. Media literacy standards have been incorporated across content areas and grade levels in all 50 states. Join us to learn more about this information age survival skill. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

As a result of this session teachers will:

  1. Understand the importance of teaching media literacy in the classroom;
  2. Explore media literacy resources; and
  3. Learn to use the 5 key questions of media literacy when planning lessons.
