Sponsor: Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide
Fri, 11/18: 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM CST
Room: Endymion/Mid-City - 8th Floor 
This panel aims to exchange ideas on redefining media literacy to better reflect the contemporary media landscape. Not only will new definitions of media literacy be proposed, but the way in which media literacy is valued and applied given various political, economic, educational, and technical developments will also be discussed. Submissions include in-depth interviews with teachers and students along with leading scholarship on navigating and classifying media in a tumultuous political landscape. This panel will focus on creating an objective conceptualization of media literacy that can be used as a guide given the demands of the rapidly unfolding digital age.
