MLN-RI State Chapter Leader presents at Women’s Advisory Council Meeting
MLN-RI presents media literacy ideas to RI Department of Education
In February, RI State Chapter Leader Pam Steager was the featured presenter for Congressman David Cicilline’s Women’s Advisory Council meeting, which was well received by the Congressman and the 20 RI women leaders in attendance. A few months ago, MLN-RI created a document to start collecting ideas to share with the RI DoE. That document is available on the MLN-RI web site, and at last count there were 40 separate ideas from 11 respondents on our Action Items brainstorming list. MLN-RI is still doing outreach to the various constituencies of the Department of Education, hoping to build a following on social media and a word of mouth buzz. MLN-RI presented ideas and listened to what school superintendents think about integrating media literacy into the curriculum in Rhode Island at the April 5th meeting. Various members will also be bringing the MLN-RI message to a series of community conversations being held around the state by the RI Council for the Humanities in the coming months.
