AME 25th anniversary and Twitter Summit to coincide with national Media Literacy Week

Media Literacy Week, October 31 – November 4, will kick off on Friday, October 28, 2016, when Twitter will host the Digital Citizenship Summit launch event for U.S. Media Literacy Week at their San Francisco headquarters.

The all-day global event aims to work towards solutions, promote best practices, and empower citizens to “be the digital change.” The event is being livestreamed (or Periscoped) through Twitter’s @Safety account, and can also be watched directly at BeTheDigitalChange.com.

The Summit features a diverse range of speakers and panels, working towards the one underlying question: How can we be the digital change?

Participants can also follow along and contribute by using #digcitsummit, #BeTheDigitalChange, and #MediaLitWk.

The mission of Media Literacy Week is to highlight the power of media literacy education and its essential role in education today. Media Literacy is the ability to ACCESS, ANALYZE, EVALUATE, COMMUNICATE and CREATE using all forms of media.

RSVP for our 25th anniversary celebration on Thursday, November 3 during the second annual Media Literacy Week, hosted by the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE).
