Media Literacy Resources
When we think of ‘media’ we think of mass communication which includes broadcasting (by radio or TV), publishing (as in books, newspapers, magazines & journals) and the internet (including websites, social media and email). We often hear expressions such as ‘information overload’ and ‘information anxiety’, and many people find it difficult to perceive what is truly important. This is because the modern, technological world has influenced patterns of media consumption, and the flow of information increases in volume and speed every day.
As we are bombarded with material from all types of media, it is important that we know how to interpret and comprehend this information. We need to analyse and challenge the messages we receive, and to do this we need to ask questions. This is the reason why media literacy is so important and should be part of everyone’s education.
