16th Annual Northeast Media Literacy Conference (Virtual) – Jan 13-14

Posted by Media Education Lab on November 29, 2022

The 16th Annual Northeast Media Literacy Conference is going global and online, January 13-14, 2023!

Media literacy education is often seen as part of the solution to the many information and political challenges we face around the world. We hear various stakeholders declare the importance of media literacy education, including policymakers and politicians, educators, researchers, journalists, social media platforms, parents and caregivers, community members, and more.

But media literacy is also a moving target. As our information ecosystems evolve, so do ideas about what it means to move competently and ethically through these media environments. Each stakeholder may have a different conceptualization of what it means to be “media literate” and whose responsibility it is to make progress there. Sometimes those conceptualizations can exist in tension with one another. Sometimes one stakeholder’s conceptualization of media literacy can frame the work of media literacy education in ways that don’t quite fit the conceptualization of another set of stakeholders.

NMLC23 is organized around the theme of RESISTING THE FRAME. The conference registration fee is only $25. Join us to explore three themes that examine these key questions:

  1. Global Media Literacy and Technology Policy
  2. Reimagining Ed Tech in Schools
  3. Propoganda and Persuasion
