Media Education Conference Detroit August 1-4



This is a conference that I usually attend and have presented at several times since 1996 when it was called the National Media Education Conference. It is excellent for all those who wish to integrate media literacy into life, school curriculum, and religious education/catechesis. Here is the latest press information:




NAMLE (formerly AMLA) will hold its 2009 annual conference this

August in Detroit, MI. Featured will be the latest theory, research,

and strategies in media literacy education. The theme, “Bridging

Literacies . . . Critical Connections in a Digital World” speaks to

the educational challenges facing teachers, schools and

administrators today.


This year’s conference will host more than sixty events, including

keynotes, workshops, screenings, special interest caucuses and

roundtable discussions. Among the special events is the launch of the

new Journal of Media Literacy Education, the Modern Media Makers (m3)

production camp for high school students, and a celebration of

Motowns 50th anniversary.


Join us in Detroit for four days of non-stop professional development

in media education! Complete details and online registration are
