Digital Media Literacies in the ELA Classroom: Empowering Student Voices through Production and Critique
How do we help our students to become more critical consumers and producers of digital media? How do we help them to develop essential 21st-century literacies without sacrificing our commitments to teaching literature and writing? This webinar will frame media literacy education in the context of student engagement, academic development, and student voice. We will discuss how teachers can help students to ask hard questions of the media they consume and how students can experience greater joy and connection to their everyday literacies. We will conclude by exploring exciting ways that teachers can integrate digital media into their traditional literature-based units.
