2013 Literacy for All Conference - October 5, 2013.

Communication through the use of video is as powerful and exciting as it has ever been in our history. Digital technology is revolutionizing the way we see the world, and how we become knowledgeable. We are not only consumers, but creators, whose ideas are vast, creative and more untapped than we have ever experienced before. The American educational system needs to not only embrace video and online digital media as a viable form of student learning, but educators need to encourage it, promote it, and become, active video creators and users themselves. It is my goal to help educators around the world, embrace the fact that our 21st Century learners are incredibly visually literate, and we must seize upon this literacy to change and innovate education moving forward.

My goal for this presentation was to inform, engage, and inspire educators to look at their classroom learning practices to find new ways to incorporate lessons of media literacy, through student-generated digital media projects.
