Media Literacy Week ’15: Exploring Media Literacy with the Children’s Media Industry

Oct 27, 2015


The Center for Media and Information Literacy was represented by Sherri Hope Culver at a workshop on Monday, November 2, 2015 to help celebrate Media Literacy Week.

From the Children’s Media Association:

“Explore media literacy with an interactive workshop for the children’s media industry!

The Children’s Media Association, the National Association for Media Literacy Education, and Fordham’s Department of Communication & Media Studies participated in Media Literacy Week (November 2-6) with an interactive workshop connecting media literacy and development of children’s media content.

The workshop began with a presentation from NAMLE leaders on “what is media literacy and how can we be mindful to use good practices when creating and producing great content for kids?” After the presentation, guests broke into small groups and participated in a media literacy activity. Using a case study format, attendees practiced enhancing children’s media content by incorporating media literacy principles into existing popular content.

The workshop was facilitated by Michelle Ciulla Lipkin, Executive Director of NAMLE and Sherri Hope Culver, NAMLE Past-President and Director of the Center for Media and Information Literacy at Temple University.
