The Australian Teachers of Media National Media Education Conference is held every two years and in 2013 took place at the Gardens Point central city campus of Queensland University of Technology from July 4th to 7th. The theme was Connected Creative Critical. Children and young people are living in a world where it is increasingly possible to be connected with others, to create with a range of digital media and in which they need to be reflective and critical about their experiences. Educators in formal and informal settings and the media industries have a responsibility to help young people to successfully participate in contemporary media cultures.
