ATOM National Media Education Conference 2013 – Call for Papers

The Australian Teachers of Media National Media Education Conference is held every two years and in 2013 will take place at the Gardens Point central city campus of Queensland University of Technology from July 4th to 7th. Join us in Brisbane to hear from some of the world’s leading thinkers in the field of media education and to join researchers, classroom teachers, educators and industry representatives for a series of inspiring conversations!

The conference theme is CONNECTED CREATIVE CRITICAL.

Children and young people are living in a world where it is increasingly possible to be connected with others, to create with a range of digital media and in which they need to be reflective and critical about their experiences. Educators in formal and informal settings and the media industries have a responsibility to help young people to successfully participate in contemporary media cultures.
