Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
Media Literacy for Parents
6. MEDIA LITERACY FOR PARENTS
Featured Speaker: Alicia Haywood
Parents bring their own life experiences and background knowledge together to develop an understanding of "media literacy" regardless of whether they use that term or not. Learn how interviews with parents reveal some important insights, tensions, and paradoxes for parents, who are themselves navigating a complex media ecosystem as they seek to support, protect, and empower their children, who have unique developmental needs as members of a family.
Parents, teachers, students, educators, school leaders, college faculty, researchers, media professionals, and community activists are invited to join us for a webinar series that explores the development of media literacy competencies across the lifespan, from birth to old age. Each session will include a featured speaker and time for small group discussion and dialogue. Join us for a single session, or participate in the whole series!
