Media Literacy Week

Posted on: November 6, 2017

Feeling overwhelmed by a constant of flood of information from tons of media sources? You’re not alone. November 6­–10 is U.S. Media Literacy Week, and our new display in Carrier highlights media literacy resources for the whole month.

Media Literacy provides a framework to access, analyze, evaluate, and create messages in a variety of forms—from print to video to the internet. Resources in the display address many aspects of media literacy, including: social media and the news, gender and racial media representation, interactive journalism, and digital citizenship.
