We are excited to introduce our NAMLE Spolight Series on Google Hangout this coming Thursday, April 11, at 1:00 PM EST.
This month, we will be profiling the work of three member organizations:
- Project Look Sharp is a media literacy education organization from Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. Executive Director Cyndy Scheibe will discuss some of the work that Look Sharp is doing at the national level.
- The LAMP (Learning About Multimedia Project) is a NYC organization that offers innovative critical media literacy programming. Co-founder D.C. Vito and Director of Communications and Development Emily Long will share their perspectives on some of the LAMP’s latest initiatives.
- The National Association for Media Arts and Culture (NAMAC) has embarked on a series of engaging discussions, events, and programs with the help of new Program and Member Services Director Aggie Ebrahimi, who will share some of NAMAC’s recent media literacy programming.
We’re planning on focusing on four general topics over the course of about one hour:(1) Projects on the horizon (or recently completed) from each participant.(2) A general conversation about current opportunities and challenges for your organization’s work.(3) A discussion of how current issues in K-12 and enrichment education (e.g. Common Core) have had an impact (if it’s had an impact) on your practice. I’m thinking specifically of standards alignment and, in Aggie’s case, providing a platform for developing the media arts standards.(4) Collaboration between groups for support and resources.
