Fostering Media Literacy

David Parry bio photo By David Parry

The National Council of English Teachers, has a set of resources designed to encourage teaching students in a range of media literacies. Some of the findings are surprising, as they indicate using computers and multi-media classrooms, markedly increase students engagement with the material. Not that I am surprised by these findings but surprised that they are so weighted. Mostly the sire contains policy statements and research, which might be useful if you are trying to encourage your academic institution to invest in more media literacy programs or heck, classrooms with computers (what a novel thought).
