A mind is a fire to be kindled, not a vessel to be filled.
Alliance for Community Media, Chicago
Renee Hobbs and David Cooper Moore presented a session entitled, " Supporting Digital and Media Literacy in Urban Elementary Schools" at the Alliance for Community Media conference in Chicago on August 2, 2012.
Children’s voices are amplified through the process of learning to access, analyze, compose, reflect and take action using the powerful communication tools of digital media. This session offers a look at the Powerful Voices for Kids program, a media literacy initiative that aims to strengthen children’s ability to think for themselves, communicate effectively, and use their powerful voices to contribute to the quality of life in their families, their schools, their communities and the world.
