MCTE Fall Workshop 2019 featuring RENEE HOBBS!

Pleasure, Presentation, and Power:
Digital Media and Critical Literacy

"There is a robust spirit of experimentation now underway in K-12 schools, as elementary and secondary educators discover how to introduce these [media literacy] competencies to children and youth...We have come a long way, baby! Now practitioners, advocates, artists, media professionals, community leaders and researchers from a wide range of fields – including education, communication and media studies, psychology, public health and more – have implemented a vast number of projects large and small in a variety of school- and non-school contexts, documenting their work and beginning to contribute to a knowledge base of best practices."  
~Renee Hobbs~

Renee Hobbs is the Founder and Director of the Media Education Lab, which supports research and community service to improve media literacy education. She is also Professor of Communications Studies at the Harrington School of Communication and Media at the University of Rhode Island where she helped develop the annual Summer Institute in Digital Literacy. Renee has had over 150 articles published and numerous books, including recently published The Library Screen Scene: Film and Media Literacy in Schools, Colleges, and Communities.
