Media Literacy Panel at Teachers College Academic Festival

We’re excited to be participating in this year’s Academic Festival at Teachers College.

Several Masclab members are featured on a panel titled, “Media Literacy,” and we are especially honored to be joined by NAMLE’s Executive Director, Michelle Lipkin, and Jessica Wolff, from TC’s Campaign for Educational Equity. Read more about the panel below, and look for links to resources below the description.

Panel Description:
In a “post-truth” era driven by digital media, students must develop skills that enable them to be critical thinkers as they both consume and create media messages. Media literacy is crucial to the development of America’s youth, and to their future participation in civic life. This panel will facilitate a timely conversation on the opportunities and challenges facing media literacy today, by bringing together different perspectives and approaches to media literacy education.

Moderator:

Lalitha Vasudevan | Professor of Technology & Education and Director, Media and Social Change Lab, Teachers College
