MEDIA LITERACY NOW

RHODE ISLAND

EDUCATION & ADVOCACY FOR ALL

Rhode Island can be the first media-literate state in the nation. Imagine if:

  • All PreK-12 students in Rhode Island how to tell the difference between fact and fiction in media, determine the purpose of media messages, and access age-appropriate technology and media. 

  • Learners spot harmful stereotypes that are part of entertainment media and celebrity culture, appreciating the social responsibility of  those who create and share stories.

  • Students learn to create stories and messages that reflect and share their unique cultural background and life experiences, increasing cultural competence for all.

  • Rhode Island high school students use digital media to demonstrate learning objectives, and become aware of how media is used to persuade as well as inform and entertain.

Visualizing the Future

Imagine If...

  • Students critically analyze information sources to distinguish between credible information and propaganda. 

  • Every librarian is comfortable offering a media literacy workshop to parents of school-aged children, helping them to make good choices of apps, TV shows, movies and games to support their children’s learning.

  • All Rhode Island educators participated in professional development programs in media literacy pedagogy to learn how to help students be responsible media consumers and creators.

  • Filmmakers, animators, and media artists actively support local schools to develop project-based learning in media arts, supporting students and teachers in media creation projects that engage and educate.
