Partnership formed in 2001. Launched Media Awareness Day in 2003, which has grown into Media Literacy Week.What is the Issue?: What is the Issue? To achieve a formalized partnership, we propose the creation of a CLA Network concerned with media literacy for youth. “ School libraries and librarians have a valuable role to play both in helping to design and teach digital literacy and in helping to assure that both teachers and students are aware of how to use electronic media wisely” (CLA, Improving Canada’s Digital Advantage, 2010).Why is Digital Literacy Important?: Why is Digital Literacy Important? use: the skills to effectively engage with computers and the internet understand: benefit from knowing how to find, evaluate and use digital information create: fully engage and participate within a digital societySlide 5: “We see public libraries as a key partner in providing public education on Internet literacy to parents, community leaders, and to young people…The role that libraries are playing means that parents are not alone with this task.” says Jan D’Arcy, Executive Director, Media Awareness Network ( MNet , 2003). (http://www.masternewmedia.org/learning_educational_technologies, 2011 )Why form a Network?: Why form a Network? Currently , there is no CLA Network that addresses the role of the library in promoting media and digital literacy. “The Network would then be the place for members to learn more about the topic, develop expertise, and contribute towards grassroots advocacy initiatives in that area” (CLA Future Plan, 2010).Network Benefits: Network Benefits The collaborative spirit inherent in CLA Networks reinforces CLA’s core values ( cla.ca , 2011). A Network established to promote media literacy for youth would strengthen and support the working relationship between the CLA and MNet .Partnership: Partnership CLA- MNet partnership would streamline program development & communication efforts for both organizations. Public libraries are the main provider of access to information for many people.
