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.
Hobbs at International Reading Association in Minneapolis
At the International Reading Association conference in Minneapolis, Renee Hobbs explores the topic, "Composing with Words and Images with Web 2.0 Tools."
In this hands-on session, participants get to explore tools including Flickr and Voice Thread, resources that can be used to promote critical analysis, collaboration and communication skills. Hobbs will also share insights on the copyright implications of this work, based on her work developing the Code of Best Practices for Fair Use in Media Literacy Education, which clarifies how fair use applies to teaching and learning about and with mass media, popular culture and digital media.
