The News Co/Lab works to
advance media literacy through journalism, education and technology.
We’re based at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Our model is open, collaborative and research-driven. There is not one solution to this problem, and we believe in amplifying efforts to get digital media literacy into more homes, schools and businesses.
We partner with leaders in journalism, education and technology to strengthen public understanding and engagement with media.
We’re grateful for support we’ve received from the Facebook Journalism Project, Craig Newmark Philanthropies, Democracy Fund, Rita Allen Foundation and News Integrity Initiative.
