EDUCATION CORNER: MEDIA LITERACY WEEK IN PBC

November 7, 2018



Alicia Haywood

Award-winning producer and educator Alicia Haywood has engaged The Palm Beaches in U.S. Media Literacy Week, running from November 5-9 to raise awareness of the critical need for media literacy education across the country. #MediaLitWk is currently being promoted through public outreach activities, classroom lessons, film screenings, virtual events, PSAs, panel discussions, town halls, and more. “I created The iSpeakMedia Foundation as a non-profit platform to advance my efforts in legislation for media literacy education and public outreach programming. Florida State Representative David Silvers (of PBC) has been incredibly helpful with introducing Media Literacy Week to the schools in his district. “My hope is that other state leaders, educators, parents, and media professionals will support the mission as well in years to come.” Discover more about the program online at MediaLiteracyWeek.us and ispeakmedia.org.
