Read the Working Paper stemming from the special Symposium on the Ontario K12 Media Literacy Curriculum, held December 13-14, 2019 at OISE. It reflects the alliance of educators, scholars and activists who call for action supporting a re-invigorated, interdisciplinary and evidence-based renewal of the Ontario K-12 media literacy curriculum that could bring us fully into the 21st century. We call for a globalized and internationally minded media and digital literacy teaching and learning dedicated to social and environmental justice in Canada and around the world.
