In this learning pathway we explore the meaning of media literacy in a digital age. Media, as a form of communication, is never ideologically neutral. Therefore, it is important to develop critical skills to analyse and evaluate media online. Media literacy also encompasses the skills of creating media, so we encourage learners to participate in the optional photo challenge for each pathway in this micro-course.
On successful completion of this learning pathway you will be able to:
- Define media literacy for a digital age.
- List issues associated with media literacy for youth and adults.
- Critically analyse a media release justifying the evaluation perspective.
