"Media literacy is NOT media bashing. The media exist, they are, and they will continue to play an important role in our lives.  Media are enjoyable. Media are frightening. Media are informative. Media are misleading. But regardless, media are omnipresent. That’s why it’s incumbent upon us to understand our relationship with media and to actively engage with it.Media literacy is NOT telling others what to think or believe. Instead, media literacy provides the tools of critical thinking – a methodology for learning and teaching critical thinking skills – that empower individuals to make their own choices in a hopefully more informed way.Media literacy is NOT fostering cynicism, nor is it about being a Pollyanna. Media literacy encourages a healthy skepticism through a process of inquiry. It is through asking questions that we find answers.Media literacy is NOT just using media to teach. Media literacy provides a distinct pedagogy based on the Five Core Concepts (link) of media literacy. These Five Core Concepts apply to both deconstruction and construction of media, and therein lie their power to provide the process skills that are so needed in learning to be wise consumers, producers and participants in the media world."
