English for Media Literacy

Media literacy is essential because it helps people understand the messages that are being communicated to them. With so many sources of information today, media literacy can help people identify reliable sources and filter through the noise to get at the truth.

  • Media literacy can help people recognise biases in the media and how they may affect their perception of an event or issue.

  • Media literacy can also be used to learn about new ideas, cultures, and perspectives that may not have been previously considered. Understanding media may help you do better at school or work. Media literacy can also help people decide what they want to learn more about to fill in the gaps in knowledge the traditional media may have left out.

  • The more aware we are of what’s happening around us in our communities, schools, and workplaces – the better equipped we’ll be to create change. For example, we can use the media we consume to inform ourselves about what’s happening in our nation and world. The more aware we are of how certain groups are underrepresented or misrepresented by mainstream media, the more impetus for these groups to take charge of their representation through social media platforms and blogs.

  • Media literacy is a skill that has been a part of the curriculum for decades, but its importance is on an all-time high. Not only does it allow students to analyze media in their lives and communities critically, but it also prepares them for college or careers.
