MLN consulted in shaping of digital citizenship education legislation
Exciting news! Utah has just passed legislation that will require all schools to have a digital citizenship program that “empowers a student to make smart media and online choices.” It also provides for a funding source. The governor signed the bill March 25. See Utah page for details.
During the drafting of this bill, Media Literacy Now was consulted by EPIK Deliberate Digital, a Utah organization seeking to address “the complex issue of raising children in a tech-saturated world.” We were able to provide advice and resources, and are now working in partnership with this organization to advance media literacy education in Utah.
