Media Literacy: Helping Students Make Sense of their Digital World

Students today are immersed in digital media, making media literacy skills more critical than ever. How can we as educators help our students become more media literate? How can we help them uncover their own biases, and those of media producers? How can we help students become excellent digital citizens, both in and out of the classroom? Are we doing everything we can to teach them the skills they need to safely navigate, consume, and even produce media on the Internet?

Join this workshop to answer these questions and develop your own media literacy awareness, as well as receive and share resources and lesson plans that can make media literacy accessible and engaging to all middle and high school learners. In order to fully participate in this workshop, please bring a device (laptop, Chromebook, or tablet).
