Introduction to Media Literacy | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

«Being media literate is essential in our world. Today, many people get most of their information through complex combinations of text, images, and sounds. We need to be able to navigate this complex media environment, to make sense of the media messages that bombard us every day, and to express ourselves using a variety of media tools and technologies. This handout, appropriate for ages 11 to adult, discusses different concepts and skills to help build your media literacy knowledge.  Use it in schools, community settings, or for professional development trainings.»
