NAMLE and Education Organizations Come Together to Create the National Media Literacy Alliance

The National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) formed the National Media Literacy Alliance, “a network of leading education associations united in an effort to advance media literacy education as a necessary element of a complete 21st-century education in America. At a time when misinformation threatens civil discourse and the very nature of our democracy, the Alliance will work to ensure that students across our nation have the critical thinking skills necessary to navigate our ever-expanding modern media landscape.”

Its founding members include the American Association of School Librarians (AASL), the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). They “will work together to support their network of educators in integrating media literacy education into their classrooms, reference media literacy in their instructional standards, include media literacy content in their respective national and regional conferences, and contribute to NAMLE’s annual State of Media Literacy Report to better track and analyze the practice across the country. Twitter provided initial funding for the Alliance.”

For more information, read the press release.
