Media literacy is an important skill both in and outside of the classroom for students of all ages. The average teenager spends 9-10+ hours a day in the digital space while tweens and younger-aged children are spending an average of 4-6 hours. How do these students decipher between what is real and what has been fabricated online? We, as educators and family members, must teach them how to use their close reading skills to become critical thinkers and give them tools to analyze and evaluate the content presented to them.
Join myON’s Susannah Moran for a robust edWebinar where we will discuss the impact teachers can have on this important topic. We’ll share best practices, classroom tips and examples from schools across the country who are successfully implementing media literacy into their daily routines.
There will be a Q&A segment following Susannah’s presentation. All K-12 educators, librarians, and administrators are invited to this live, interactive event. Join us to learn how to improve the way you teach media literacy!
