Media literacy – the ability to critically consume and create media – is an essential skill in today’s world. Media literacy education seeks to give kids and adults greater freedom by empowering them to access, analyze, evaluate and produce media.

Media literate youth and adults are better able to understand the complex messages we receive from television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, billboards, signs, packaging, marketing materials, video games, recorded music, the Internet and other forms of media. They can understand not only the surface content of media messages (the “text”) but also the more important meanings (the “subtext”) hidden beneath the surface. People who are media literate can also create their own media, becoming active participants in our media culture.

Channel One News not hiring, as if you were interested.

From Jim Metrock:  Houghton Mifflin’s controversial Channel One News is not hiring. Summer is a bad time for this dinosaur of a youth marketing firm.  The summer months are a perfect time for schools to end their contract with Channel One.  When a TV show is losing their audience, why hire more people?
