Ben Boyington

Action Coalition for Media Education
Vice President
Ben is an educator and education activist based in New Hampshire. He teaches media, English, film, and history at the high school and college levels. Outside the classroom, he is vice president of the Action Coalition for Media Education and coordinator of ConnectED/Global Critical Media Literacy Project, which focus on the integration of critical media literacy education from kindergarten through doctoral studies. Boyington founded his high-school media studies work on the idea that skepticism and activism are essential to citizenship.
He believes that depth of understanding comes from integration, design, and teaching others, and that heutagogy is more important than pedagogy. His research into the 1:1 screen initiative is published in Media Education for a Digital Generation (Routledge, 2016).
