Media Literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create media in a variety of forms. Media Literacy Week takes place November 5th - 9th.
#NYCSchoolsTech Podcast host, Nancy Ribak Altadonna, just released two new episodes to bring the experts in media literacy and digital citizenship directly to you. Supporting students with digital & media literacy instruction isn’t just the right thing to do, every school must educate students in grades K–12 in accordance with Federal and State regulations. These episodes showcase how industry leaders support media literacy education and how teachers and parents can leverage the power of media inside and outside of the classroom.
Part 1: Tali Horowitz, Common Sense Education
Part 2: Michelle Ciulla Lipkin, National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE)
#NYCSchoolsTech educators can learn even more by attending our Summit on Digital Citizenship and Media Literacy taking place on Election Day.
