This is the third public forum for the UNCF's Digital Media & Learning in Multicultural Contexts series. This forum will focus on the opportunities and challenges faced by young people and educators living in increasingly free-flowing digital cultures. The presenters will share their research and applications of digital media in higher education, public school and community settings. Their discussion will focus on issues such as media literacy, identity, privacy and appropriate online behavior as well as the barriers to learning sometimes created by institutional policies meant to circumscribe the use of digital media by youth.
