If students aren’t taught the language of sound and images, shouldn’t they be considered as illiterate as if they left college without being able to read and write?
Look around you. Do you see someone with a smartphone? A laptop? A tablet? Odds are you do. Media and technology are everywhere. With the digital world around us, it has never been more important to critically think, effectively communicate, and actively participate with media. The National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) is a professional non-profit organization committed to expanding the practice of media literacy education so that all people are thoughtful and effective media consumers and creators.
Support media literacy in 2016 and beyond by giving to NAMLE.
