How to Teach Media Literacy

Frameworks for Inquiry

We focus on the use of frameworks as tools for judgment and decision-making, and show how they embody key principles of media literacy education. We also explore the traditional use of a conceptual framework as a tool for scientific research.

CML's Media Literacy Trilogy

CML introduced a trilogy for anytime, anywhere learning. Two e-books now available online explain why critical thinking, intellectual inquiry and student choice are essential for teaching and learning in an information age, and how the principles of media literacy education can be uniquely helpful for schools which are preparing for systemic change. This issue also includes an interview with media literacy pioneer Jean-Pierre Golay and a summary of the Obama Administration’s Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights.
