Digital and Media Literacy at Educon
We enjoyed the chance to engage with more than 40 leading educational technology educators from all across the United States who attended the renowned Philadelphia Educon conference, sponsored by Chris Lehmann, principal of the Science Leadership Academy.
Joining the group from Chicago was Renee Hobbs who Skyped in to introduce the policy paper commissioned by the Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in a Democracy. Led by Kristin Hokanson and David Cooper Moore, the session was an active conversation that explored strategies for addressing the challenges identified in the report. Sponsored by the Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in a Democracy, the white paper outlines action steps to bring digital and media literacy education into education through collaboration and partnerships.
