Media Literacy in the Digital Age

from the  Reboot.gov: blog:

Media itself is being redefined as part of this new landscape of unlimited space and easy entry points to online publishing. In the new information ecosystem, a high responsibility falls on both producers and consumers of information. For consumers, there is endless material – and the challenge is to find the good blogs, videos, essays, news stories and documentaries of our time. Producers, on the other hand, bear responsibility to adhere to high standards of accuracy, diligence and transparency.

According to the Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in Democracy, successful participation in the digital age of media requires, in part, “the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create the information products.”

But what should “media literacy” or “digital literacy” entail?

Reboot wants to know what you think of how the Common Core Standards define media literacy.  Please take time to share your feedback!
