Digital Media Literacy Academy
The Digital Media Literacy Academy was five-month fellowship running from January to May 2018. The fellows, selected from Philadelphia based community organizations, learned about media literacy concepts and then took part in creating instructional videos to help others understand core media literacy concepts. The fellows created fun, informative learning videos on the topics of password security, media ownership, news literacy and being a good digital citizen.
The intention is that their videos along with the accompanying lessons will be used in all types of educational settings to help others gain a better understanding of these important concepts for living in today's digital world.
The Digital Media Literacy Academy was led by PhillyCAM, a community media center that operates the City of Philadelphia's public access television and was made possible by a grant from the Digital Literacy Alliance.
