During this session, we will look at the global landscape of media, civic values, and education today; and examine how a vantage point can be manipulated daily by today’s technology advancements. Then we will test your biases and emotional triggers to help move you closer to your staff, students, and communities’ footsteps. Finally, we will practice a few media literacy strategies that any K-20 educator can use with students to help combat mis/disinformation.
We invite educators to continue to learn and grow with these resources. Discover and collect new ideas and examples relevant to you after viewing the session video and related resources. Take notes and reflect while you view so you can customize the techniques for your own remote learning and classroom needs and adapt the strategies for your students.
