Media and digital literacy skills have become essential to daily life - but integrating media education into classrooms and workplaces can feel overwhelming.

Headed by one of Canada’s media literacy experts, Hands On Media Education can help you and your organization navigate the constantly changing digital world.

We provide relevant and customized media literacy tools, training and expertise across three main services:


Media literacy expertise for researchers, program coordinators, organizations and governments

We regularly partner with major research projects and initiatives across Canada, in the North and globally.

Contact us with opportunities to collaborate, to gather and share digital literacy insights, to develop best practices and bridge the digital divide.

Our immersive approach to media education was developed - and has been proven - through thousands of hours of engagement with students and educators.
