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.
Labsters Welcome NAMLE to Philadelphia
Everyone at the Media Education Lab is looking forward to the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) as it comes to Philadelphia July 22 - 25, 2011. This group comes together every two years to expand the knowledge and practice of media literacy education in the United States and around the world. NAMLE President Sherri Hope Culver and founding board member Renee Hobbs welcome all their colleagues and friends to Philadelphia. The faculty, students and affiliates of the Media Education Lab will be on hand to show you the best that Philadelphia has to offer!
One of the very best things about NAMLE is the diversity of voices, pedagogies and technologies that comprise the growing field of media literacy education. There is a wide and broad constituency joining us in Philadelphia that includes young people, families and adults of all ages, academic researchers, P-16 teachers, teacher educators, art educators, community leaders, media producers, non-profit partners, faith-based groups, pediatricians and other health professionals. This IS the media literacy event of the year so REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE TODAY!
