Teens (ages 13-18 ) spend nearly 10 hours a day consuming media. Within that timeframe, they can be exposed to thousands of media messages. Do they understand what they see? Can they distinguish between real or altered content? Digital literacy — the ability to use technology to locate, evaluate, interpret and create information — is a critical skill that needs attention in today’s classrooms.
Join teachers and other education stakeholders for a two-day conference that aims to help us understand and navigate this literacy so we can guide our students to become productive, ethical and empathetic digital citizens.
