On June 26 – 27, educators, researchers, librarians and youth-media experts converged in Philadelphia for two energetic days of idea-sharing, brainstorming, and professional development and media in the classroom and media literacy.
Whether you’re new to the media literacy field, a veteran of it, or just curious about how to incorporate media literacy education in your own classroom, you’re sure to come away with abundant resources, personal connections, and lots of energy and ideas.
Educator and author Vivian Vasquez is the opening keynote speaker, and there will be more than 30 unique program sessions.
The conference was part of Global Media and Information Literacy Week and brought scholars and teachers from across the globe to this Philadelphia-based conference.
An international plenary session included representatives from UNESCO, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and university educators from Spain, Japan, China, Egypt, Jamaica, Mexico and more to share global media literacy practice and research.
As a bonus, CEU credits are being offered to K12 teachers at no charge.
