Julie Smith, Adjunct Professor, Southern Illinois at Edwardsville & Webster University
Media literacy has been her passion since 1997, and she will talk about it to anyone who will listen. Worst thing ever said about her as a professor? “She took the joy out of watching ‘Jersey Shore’ for me.” The best thing? “She never played games on my computer ONCE during her classes.”
She advocates less preaching and more coaching when it comes to digital citizenship education. Whatever you call it –media literacy, digital literacy, digital citizenship, news literacy – it all boils down to one thing: CRITICAL THINKING
