Fostering Accountability: Media Literacy in the Classroom
Tuesday, October 03, 2017 11:00:00 PM UTC - Wednesday, October 04, 2017 12:30:00 AM UTC
Join us to learn strategies for planning engaging media literacy lessons.
As digital media increasingly replaces traditional media, students must have the skills to think critically about these new types of texts.  Media literacy – the ability to skillfully read and write in a wide range of message forms – allows students to identify themes and issues emerging from popular culture. Media literacy standards have been incorporated across content areas and grade levels in all 50 states. Join us to learn more about this information age survival skill and how to prepare lessons in time for media literacy week. This session is for teachers at ALL technology comfort levels.**

OK2Ask are hands-on exploratory workshops, not sit & gets. We highly recommend that you attend using a computer with an updated browser (Chrome or Edge). Those attending on mobile devices may not be able to fully participate and therefore may not receive a certificate. You are welcome to join us on a mobile device, but this may jeopardize your ability to receive CEUs.

As a result of this session teachers will:
Understand the importance of teaching media literacy in the classroom;
Explore media literacy resources; and
Learn to use the 5 key questions of media literacy when planning lessons.
