Annual Conference Session
Though media literacy and information literacy are intertwined, there are important differences; and there has never been a more urgent need for an incisive examination of the crucial role librarians and other educators can play in teaching the skills necessary to access, analyze, evaluate, and create media. Media literate youth and adults are better able to understand the complex messages emanating from television, movies, radio, the internet, news outlets, magazines, books, billboards, video games, music, and all other forms of media. In this panel discussion based on her new book, international expert De Abreu and a panel including Jimmeka Andersen, Neil Andersen, and Marialice Curran explore how consuming media and technology impacts the learning of K–12 students.
