It’s an expansion of traditional literacy that accounts for all the ways we process and produce information. The goal of media literacy education is to empower active citizens to be critical thinkers and responsible producers of media.

  1. LOL: the author states; “the free, virtual News Literacy Challenge, from the University of Maine’s Fogler Library and Department of Communication Journalism” — but it’s not from University of Maine’s Fogler Library and Department of Communication Journalism, It’s from Google Docs. Maybe Alan Berry (a PhD student at the University of Maine and the Maine state chapter leader for Media Literacy Now) should learn a little more about media literacy himself? #LMFAO 😀
