This live event from Teaching Tolerance will offer practical tips for educators hoping to teach or better understand media literacy. Monita Bell and Cory Collins will address common problems in teaching/understanding media literacy—such as educators not being up to date on the current online landscape, or lack of access to technology—and suggest solutions. Solutions will include our new podcast about digital literacy, The Mind Online. They will also include lessons and resources from our Digital Literacy Framework, which includes K-12 materials that can be used with or without technology, and classroom-friendly videos.

The power and influence of gender representation remains a pressing issue in children’s media. While improvements are visible (witness more girls in lead roles in streaming series and featured in new programs on kids cable networks), challenges remain. Finding the right balance requires understanding — and a desire to help all children find themselves represented in media. Should our focus be on individual programs or individual games? Or should this be dealt with on a network-wide basis? And what about issues of gender fluidity and whether we should be focusing children on binary male/female choices at all? Join us for a deep dive into this topic and come away with a more nuanced understanding of the issues and new ways to think about these issues in your children’s media work.
