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.
"It is no longer enough simply to read and write. Students must also become literate in the understanding of visual images. Our children must learn how to spot a stereotype, isolate a social cliche, and distinguish facts from propaganda, analysis from banter, and important news from coverage."
- E. Boyer, President, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
