Competences in media education: general framework

Competences in media education: general framework | Media literacy | Scoop.it

«The goal of media education is to develop numerous competences in learners. These competences support them in performing a number of tasks related to a variety of media objects (cameras, internet sites, books, blackboards, road signs, etc.). These tasks will be necessary for them to partake and grow in today’s media landscape in the following manner : critically, responsibly, creatively, autonomously, and well prepared for life in society1. The sum of competences linked to media usage can be coined with the new term “media literacy”».

Media and information literacy: policy and strategy guidelines | UNESCO

Media and information literacy: policy and strategy guidelines | UNESCO | Media literacy | Scoop.it
This comprehensive MIL Policy and Strategy Guidelines resource is the first of its kind to treat MIL as a composite concept, unifying information literacy and media literacy as well as considering the right to freedom of expression and access to information through ICTs. These guidelines offer a harmonized approach, which in turn enables all actors to articulate more sustained national MIL policies and strategies, describing both the process and content to be considered.

Media Is Unreal: Bring Media Literacy into Science Literacy

Media Is Unreal: Bring Media Literacy into Science Literacy | Media literacy | Scoop.it

«In the US, almost all states now have some curriculum standards related to media literacy. Commonly, media literacy is included in English classes, though it is recognized as dovetailing with topics in health class because the tools are useful for deconstructing messages about tobacco and alcohol, as well as cyberbullying and racial stereotyping. Several years ago, I called for media literacy to be integrated into science education, particularly on the issue of climate change.»

How the Web Became Our ‘External Brain,’ and What It Means for Our Kids | Opinion | WIRED | Media literacy | Scoop.it

For all the wild variety of our cultures, personalities, and thought patterns, we’re all still operating with roughly the same three-pound lump of gray matter. But almost from day one, the allotment of neurons in those brains (and therefore the way they function) is different today from the way it was even one generation ago. Every second of your lived experience represents new connections among the roughly 86 billion neurons packed inside your brain.

What does the term "digitally literate" mean? This article gices some prompts about what digital literacy is- and what it isn't.

Kristen McDaniel's curator insight, August 4, 11:15 AM

I really enjoyed this article on "do's" and "don'ts" for empowering students in digital literacy techniques.  I think we forget - this is where our students shine. The article points out that today's undergraduates have NEVER known life without the internet.  How do we use that to help our students learn more?

Thought-provoking, John. I think their sample size is way too small to draw any conclusions, however. Nevertheless, it is an interesting twist for further exploration.

Global Citizenship in a Digital World

Global Citizenship in a Digital World | Media literacy | Scoop.it

«Global citizenship assumes ease of participation in global spaces in which persons are media and information literate and are equipped with competencies and attitudes to deal with the multi-faceted nature of a mediated world in which information is no longer bound by space or time. The unprecedented access to and use of media and Internet technologies for communication and collaboration especially among youth, suggest that effective strategies must be found to enable active critical inquiry and effective media production. The proliferation of mediated spaces throughout education environments, as well as personal and professional environments, does not in itself guarantee that citizens will consider their role as global citizens as they create and consume media. This awareness must be cultivated, encouraged and taught.»
