At this day-long seminar for educators and parents, participants explored issues related to the impact of mass media and new technologies on child development and learned strategies for building media literacy skills with children from kindergarten to Grade 5.
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.
