Going Global and Going Online
DATE: November 6 - 7, 2020
Welcome to the 15th Annual Northeast Media Literacy Conference, a fully-online and global conference!
When you join us on November 6 - 7, 2020, you will join more than 300 educators, students, researchers, librarians and media professionals for knowledge sharing and dialogue about best practices in media literacy education.
We have so much to learn from each other! Here's 5 steps to maximize your conference experience:
1. Create your profile. Conferences are powerful ways to build your personal and professional network. Compose a profile that helps people understand what they might be able to learn from you.
2. Select sessions to attend. With more than 50 sessions available, you will have to be strategic and intentional. Use the Agenda to select sessions and add them to your Google Calendar.
3. Visit the Community space. Here you can participate in "slow conversations" that unroll over time. Explore the profiles of participants and reach out to interact with them.
4. Visit the Sponsors and Exhibitors who show their support for media literacy. See what they are offering you!
5. Download the mobile app to see additional features, including photo sharing, a photo caption contest, a leaderboard with prizes, and more!

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Northeast Media Literacy Conference!
