What is AOC's Media Literacy Program?
AOC’s Media Literacy Program is a free interactive education program that offers creative and engaging K-12 media literacy presentation sessions to any Lafayette parish educator.
Our classroom sessions cover a broad range of relevant media literacy and digital citizenship topics, including responsible media consumption, critical analysis of commercial advertisements, and social media culture competence.
Our program curriculum is derived from Common Sense Media (or CSM), a leading independent nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering teachers by providing resources to help them harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all students’ lives. The curriculum is designed to fit seamlessly into the classroom and is aligned to state and national standards, including CCSS (Common Core), ISTE’s NET•S (International Society for Technology in Education’s National Education Technology Standards), and AASL (American Association of School Librarians (AASL) standards.
