The U.S. Department of Education

In March 2008, the US Department of Education’s Office of Educational Technology convened an information session on media literacy that was open to all department employees.  Kimberly Brodie, Special Assistant in the Office of Educational Technology, led the discussion.  Tessa Jolls of the Consortium was an invited speaker, as well as Doug Levin of Cable in the Classroom, the U.S. cable industry’s education foundation.  This conference is a first-time acknowledgment by the Department that media literacy -- education that focuses on new technologies as a subject for study -- should be considered for inclusion in the Department’s agenda.
