Media Literacy Week

Media Literacy Week is an annual event that takes place the first week of November. Co-lead by MediaSmarts and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation, the week puts a spotlight on the importance of digital and media literacy as a key component in the education of children and young people.

Its goal is to promote digital and media literacy as key components in the education of youth and to help young people develop the critical thinking skills necessary for active and informed engagement with media. Find out more at www.medialiteracyweek.ca #MLW2012 @mediasmarts
