Scharber presents at symposium focused on youth media + digital citizenship

Cassie Scharber recently presented at a Symposium focused on Youth Media and Digital Citizenship, sponsored by the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) and the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota.
Scharber joined others from the field of education, including both teachers and researchers, in exploring connections between the fields of education and journalism related to youth media production. This symposium gathered experts from outside journalism and mass communication who discussed research and pedagogical approaches to exploring the questions: How do young people use new communication technologies to learn about issues that matter to them? How do they adapt these media to inform others about important issues? What do young people gain from these experiences?
