Media Is Unreal: Bring Media Literacy into Science Literacy

Media Is Unreal: Bring Media Literacy into Science Literacy | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | 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.»

Media Literacy: Understanding the News

«Media literacy training gives the public the tools to be active citizens. It helps people understand the value of news, defend their access to free information, decipher the messages they receive, use their rights of free expression to make their voices heard, and participate in the process of governing.»http://americaspeaks.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Susan-Moeller_Media-Literacy-Understanding-The-News_2009.pdf
