Teach Media Literacy

Print comment Post Comments
"In the Internet age of unlimited information, clear truths and facts are often in short supply, a problem frequently exacerbated by performers in the blogosphere and the 24-hour news cycle. Not only has the participatory net led to a surge of sites, aggregators, and blogs espousing different ideologies or values, but rampant competition among them to be your most trusted source in news. One must learn to weed out incendiary polemics and agitprop from the whirling online maelstrom to become an informed and thoughtful citizen. To better equip our youth to navigate this fray, we should make media literacy a feature of public education. This would help young people think critically about media, and turn a discerning eye to the onslaught of coverage, opinions, and analysis that permeate our increasingly wired culture."
