District-Level Survey in Maynard, Massachusetts
Measuring the implementation of media literacy instructional practices has the potential to drive the systematic inclusion of media literacy into the elementary and secondary curriculum.
After Renee Hobbs and colleagues developed the Media Literacy Implementation Index (MLI), schools and communities are using the survey (with both students and community members) to support planning and implementation processes. With support from Media Literacy Now, school leaders in Maynard (MA) gathered data from both students and teachers to learn more about the implementation of media literacy at the district level. The report, which is available online, will be presented to school board officials and shared with faculty and staff.
Statewide Survey in Rhode Island
Media Literacy Now-RI, in collaboration with the University of Rhode Island’s Media Education Lab, conducted a statewide study of the level of media literacy integration in Rhode Island schools. The study, led by professional and student researchers at the Media Education Lab, includes an online survey of school educators, administrators, and parents, and follow-up interviews with volunteer respondents for more in-depth information. The project was supported with funding from Social Science Institute for Research, Education, and Policy (SSIREP) at the University of Rhode Island. Read the report here.
