Media and technology are ever present in our increasingly connected society. Which means that now, more than ever, is the most crucial time for media literacy education. NAMLE is a 501(3)(c) Not for Profit organization committed to equipping students and educators with the tools and knowledge necessary to analyze and use the media effectively.
Your donation will have a direct impact in furthering our mission to nationally expand and improve the practice of media literacy education.
The NAMLE vision is to help individuals of all ages develop the habits of inquiry and skills of expression that they need to be critical thinkers, effective communicators and active citizens in today’s world.
The NAMLE mission is ”to expand and improve the practice of media literacy education in the United States.”
We define both education and media broadly. Education includes both formal and informal settings, classrooms and living rooms, in school and after school, anywhere that lifelong learners can be reached. Media includes digital media, computers, video games, radio, television, mobile media, print, and communication technologies that we haven’t even dreamed of yet.
