Digital Media Literacy Roadmap to 21st Century Learning

Commitment by

Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children's Media

In 2015, the Fred Rogers Center, the TEC Center, and the Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children committed to develop a comprehensive pilot to support digital media literacy (DML) trainings for 1,300 early childhood educators and 69 libraries in Pittsburgh and West Moreland County, PA. In order for children and teachers to effectively leverage the pervasiveness of technology, the Fred Rogers Center and its partners will develop DML learning modules for educators, provide case studies and videos of best practices, and a mobile app for teacher credential opportunities via digital badging. Additionally, they will establish a tablet-lending system with libraries in order to promote DML resources within the communities they are serving.
