Stephanie is a Broadcasting, Telecommunications & Mass Media major in her last semester at Temple University. She first fell in love with the idea of media literacy education while she was enrolled in Renee Hobbs' course, Field Experience in Media Literacy and Youth Media, where she worked closely with 1st grade students at Russell Byers Charter School. During her summer internship with Powerful Voices for Kids, Stephanie hopes to find her specific place within the vast world of MLE.
The Media Education Lab at the University of Rhode Island advances media literacy education through research and community service. We emphasize interdisciplinary scholarship and practice that stands at the intersections of communication, media studies and education.
Quote of the Day
A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the
language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection, not an
invitation to hypnosis.
