Moving from Text Literacy to Media Literacy

Updated Workshop! Moving from Text Literacy to Media Literacy Moving from Text Literacy to Media Literacy is scheduled for June 13th from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Are your students learning more from the media than from text? Do you want to understand the difference between media literacy, visual literacy and text literacy? All three of these are important 21st century skills, and we need to teach students to become knowledgeable media consumers and producers. In this one-day workshop, we will explore how the media is influencing the way we think, learn and even purchase.

Come learn how to analyze media messages and help promote safe, effective, student work in the 21st century and how to integrate this across the K-12 curriculum. You’ll share instructional strategies that work and discover how to measure learning outcomes for students and teachers.  We will share experiences with copyright and fair use while creating and promoting safe, legal multimedia projects for the classroom. Learn where to find, and how to properly cite, music, video clips, images and more. Leave this workshop with information about media literacy in order to formulate your own plan for integrating technology.  [$149 CSD member; $189 non-member | One Grad.
