Young people’s enthusiastic engagement with social media puts them at greater risk from the fake news and misinformation that populates the internet, alongside the true content which makes for such a rich learning environment. Helping young people navigate the digital environment is something which public libraries are well-positioned to achieve.

ALIA has worked with partners in the Australian Media Literacy Alliance to put together a half-day virtual conference for any library and information professional or other media literacy champion, who wants to develop a deeper understanding of the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of this emerging discipline that can then be shared with others.

The conference takes place on 3 September 2020, from 12:00pm to 4:00pm (AEST).

Who better to learn media literacy from than the leaders and innovators from Google, the eSafety Commissioner, ABC and the Alannah & Madeline Foundation. The half-day program sees 7 speakers with countless years of experience and insight in the industry gathered all together to share their knowledge as well as answer your questions.
