The Mexico IFT (Institute of Federal Communications), an autonomous regulatory authority for telecommunications and broadcasting, is holding its first ever Media Literacy Forum. The Institute (equivalent to the US FCC) is new in the country, since 2013, however it has developed a powerful and innovative agenda, including media literacy.
The forum focuses on parents, educators, and youth, and hopes to provide information about media literacy tools that will help these groups create media content that allows audiences to become more participative. One of the main objectives of the forum is to review the current status and expectations related to Media Literacy within Mexico while learning more about international practices related to the topic.
Sherri Hope Culver, CMIL Director, has been invited to present on the topic of “The identity of teenagers in social networks”.
