“What could you do with a partner that you could not do on your own?”
The Power of Two brings educators together to collaborate to design, implement, and assess a media literacy lesson on themes related to disinformation, fake news, and propaganda. In this online professional learning community, we show how the process of generating questions in responding to media texts opens up a natural cycle of accessing, analyzing, and creating media.
In the program, participants will experience collaborative professionalism as they construct a community of learners built on collegial solidarity, candid, thoughtful feedback, and collective responsibility. Through a variety of online programs and workshops in Zoom along with ongoing asynchronous learning experiences, participants will gain confidence in teaching with media literacy pedagogies. We'll explore topics including contemporary propaganda, disinformation, conspiracy theories, and algorithmic personalization. With individualized coaching and support, participants will deepen their understanding of how to integrate media literacy concepts and pedagogy into their curriculum.
