8.6. Media Literacy Overview

8.6.1. Definition of Media Litearcy Ed critical thinking & literacy extended to new media: core principles 1: MLE requires active inquiry and critical thinking about the messages we receive and create. 2: MLE expands the concept of literacy to include all forms of media. 3: MLE builds and reinforces skills for learners of all ages and requires practice. 4: MLE develops informed, reflective and engaged participants essential for a democratic society. 5: Media are a part of culture and function as agents of socialization. 6: People use their individual skills, beliefs and experiences to construct their own meanings from media messages. TEACHERS - you are already experts if you boil it down to basic communication (who's author, what is their intention, and what audience is this for?) production = "writing" in new media not hard for kids to pick up skills communication tool box kids can be empowered through SCHOOL to use these tools to communicate with the quality/effectiveness you try to teach them with writing 21st Century citizens need to be able to read and write in video and internet formats if they are going to be lifelong learners and informed participants in a democracy.

8.6.2. Relevance to CCSS extend CC standards to include media texts i.e. a film made at SVA is a text to be broken into parts and analyzed for it's quality, effectiveness and intention "Informational Texts" can come in many modern forms Critical thinking skills, higher order thinking can all happen and be archived and assessed through media projects and activities. Performance tasks can be assessed, archived, and planned into media projects and activities.

8.6.3. Working with Rhys project-based learning utilizing digital resources, tools & people (synchronously or asynchronously) cohort collaboration planning goal-setting unit/project/activity planning PD: to build skills and resources PD: in-class modeling and assisting
