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.
NAMLE has accomplished so much this year. This past June, we had an incredibly successful conference in Philadelphia with educators from all over the world. We launched the 1st ever Media Literacy Week in the U.S. with 117 national partners including Twitter and The American Red Cross. Our Journal of Media Literacy Education continues to grow. Our partnership with Participant Media and Pivot expanded our reach to every corner of the country. NAMLE members continue to innovate and inspire in classrooms from Rhode Island to California and beyond.
With the upcoming presidential election, it is vital to help people understand the messages they see and share each and every day. Our work is more essential than ever before and we need your support to continue it. Please take a moment and show your support for media literacy education by donating to NAMLE. Remember, every dollar helps us support educators all over the country. All donations over $40 will be acknowledged with a one-year membership to NAMLE. Give today and become an official part of our community.
