Panel Subject:  Educators in the United States have reported a huge decline in media literacy amongst American students.  The problem has been exacerbated by the proliferation of mass media, and the digital age with its ease for individual citizens, politicians and corporations to reach the world with often one- sided  messages.  The panel will discuss media literacy and teaching strategies to improve literacy in a world filled with diversions, distractions and inaccuracies.
Panelists: Martin Phillips Assistant Professor Lynn University
Gary Carlin, Assistant Professor, Advertising and Public Relations, Lynn University. Former VP of Marketing for Hasbro, Inc.
Stefanie Powers Assistant Professor Lynn University
