About the Grant:
The New York State Educational Media/Technology Association provides up to two annual Media Literacy Grants in the amount of $1,250 for certified teachers in New York State who are working with Pre-K-12 students on media literacy. Eligible educators must work in a district that participates in the media service at a BOCES or Big 5 that is an EMTA member. Media Literacy is defined as the ability to comprehend, design, and produce media. It includes critical thinking skills used to evaluate and analyze information in a variety of formats. Media Literacy is essential to be able to distinguish between fact and fiction.
The purposes of the grant are to:
Support educators who provide resources and services that correlate to state and national learning standards for instructional excellence promoting media literacy.
To provide funds for research projects or demonstration projects that can be replicated in other areas across the state and nation.
