The Northeast Regional Media Literacy Conference will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2018 in Providence, Rhode Island.
The event is part of a network of media literacy conferences held around the US.
The Northeast Regional Media Literacy Conference invites K-16 educators, librarians, school library media specialists, after school program directors, media professionals, researchers, cultural workers, and college students to collaborate about the potential and challenges for media literacy and its essential role in education today.
This year’s theme is “Media Literacy in Times of Uncertainty.” Sessions will be interactive, media-driven, digitally-designed, engaging, and inspiring.
The goals for the 2018 conference are:
- to generate new strategies in media observation, analysis, and learning;
- to pose solutions to problems that face our media-influenced society.
Keynote and breakout sessions will feature classroom lessons, community screencasts, higher education discussion panels, digital participation and collaborating, media message analysis, galleries of student-composed infographics, student-led film discussions, and much more. By dialoguing and collaborating around media literacy as a contemporary cultural imperative, participants will further their critical thinking skills connected to issues in the media and digital world.
