Young people face challenges in the digital world previously unheard of: misinformation, cyberbullying, personal data mining, and more. How can educators prepare them to be informed, engaged, media literate citizens? In this panel, hear from three educators who are having an impact on student’s digital lives. Explore how they prepare students to “read” (or analyze) media and “write” (or produce) media in their classrooms and resources that they used to develop media literacy teaching skills.
