More than any other generation, today’s youth are bombarded with information 24/7 on multiple and varied platforms. It is crucial that educators help students become savvy media consumers by learning to analyze news and all other kinds of sources for credibility, reliability and value.
This half-day session at the Newseum, in partnership with the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA), will explore ways teachers can increase news and media literacy that will enable students to make informed and well-reasoned decisions in a complex global environment. You’ll meet with media experts, peers and international industry insiders to gain strategies and ready-to-use resources for teaching media literacy to foster global citizenship.
2 p.m. Panel discussion and Q&A: Speakers from NewseumED (USA), The New York Times The Learning Network (USA), News-O-Matic (USA), #juniormedia (Poland) and News Decoder (France) will discuss how they are promoting global learning and share leading practices with a focus on using new technology.
