The New Media Literacies Conference @ TIFF Bell Lightbox
Friday, April 20th 1:00 pm – 7:30 pm
The children and youth of today – and their families, educators and content creators – exist in a drastically evolved media landscape than those of even 10 years ago. It’s clear these emerging technologies have outgrown the critical abilities that a more traditional media literacy education can offer, but exactly what are the additional new skills necessary in order to thrive in this interactive, instant-on, internet-enabled, and mobile media ecosphere? The popular TIFF Nexus series, designed to promote cross-sector connections across film, games and new media, returns to explore and engage in these themes through inspirational presentations, creative collaboration, demonstrations and hands-on learning workshops led by creators and researchers who are committed to enriching the lives of kids, youth and families.
