Coalition Building

External collaboration, and alliance and coalition-building advance our mission to advocate and propose policy changes that promote and expand media literacy education at local, state, and national levels in the U.S.. Our coalition-building brings together a range of educators, experts, advocates, and other stakeholders to identify obstacles to getting media literacy instruction in classrooms, brainstorm ways to address these obstacles, and work toward the common goal of ensuring our public education system teaches K-12 students the necessary skills they need to be discerning media consumers and navigate safely within a complex media landscape. 

Calling All Educators!

Media Literacy Now is looking to convene teachers, librarians, administrators, media literacy experts, and education organizations from a wide range of perspectives to represent the diverse needs of elementary, middle, and high school students for the purpose of gathering and vetting resources, instruction material and routines, and identifying important missing pieces pertinent to media literacy education in all subjects and at all grade levels. If you’re interested in participating or want to learn more, please fill out the survey.

Our new science-focused media literacy project, supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, aims to incorporate media literacy education into science K-12 instruction to equip students with the skills they need to better evaluate scientific information.

Digital Wellness

Given the recent research and attention to the negative effects of social media on children and young people, our digital wellness project seeks to expand upon the understanding of media literacy education to include digital wellness and ensure K-12 health education includes media literacy and digital wellness.
