Social studies educators learn from Renee Hobbs about the relationship
between media, technology and democracy and explore instructional
strategies that strengthen critical thinking, communication,
collaboration and creativity.
Media and Democracy
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.
