NAMLE is proud to announce an exciting partnership with
YouTube Kids as part of Media Literacy Week. Starting today, kids and their parents will have easy access to a NAMLE-curated list of terrific media literacy videos. Simply download the app and click on the "LEARN" icon. Videos encourage kids and parents to bring critical thinking skills to their media use and their media creations. The app is free and available for IOS and Android. New videos will continue to be added to the playlist so you can visit again and again.

In case you missed last night's google hangout, Talking to Industry about Respect in a Digital World, you can watch it here. The conversation was moderated by NAMLE Board Member, Lynette Owens. Lynette is the Global Director of Internet Safety for Kids & Families at Trend Micro. Panelists included Patricia Cartes (Twitter's Head of Global Safety Outreach), Lilly Wyden (Instagram's Public Policy Program Manager), and Anthony Licon (Fuel's Director of Creative and Product Development). 

Partner Highlight

Gateway Media Literacy Partners' goal is to attract individuals, organizations and institutions who as community citizens strongly believe media literacy is a democracy skill, is a survival skill and a nexus for change, vital to developing critical thinking, and media literacy empowers citizens to make intelligent and healthy choices throughout their lifetime.

This year marks GMLP's 10th Annual Media Literacy Week and focuses on Early Childhood. For more details about events planned in the St. Louis area, click here. We thank Jessica Brown and GMLP for inspiring us to expand Media Literacy Week efforts across the country.
