From what to how
  • The Core Principles of Media Literacy Education
    is a document that frames the key elements of
    media literacy education and provides guidelines
    for incorporating the Principles in educational
    settings.
  • The Core Principles encompass the opportunities
    and possibilities of 21st century learning
    technologies to transform both learning and
    teaching.

8
From what to how
  • The Core Principles articulate a common ground
    around which media literacy educators and
    advocates can coalesce. 
  • The Core Principles are a springboard for vibrant
    and ongoing dialogue, and as a first step in the
    development of clear, measurable outcomes and
    benchmarks for U.S. schools.

The Core Principles of Media Literacy Education
  • 1. Media Literacy Education requires active
    inquiry and critical thinking about the messages
    we receive and create.
  • 2. Media Literacy Education expands the concept
    of literacy (i.e., reading and writing) to
    include all forms of media.
  • 3. Media Literacy Education builds and reinforces
    skills for learners of all ages. Like print
    literacy, those skills necessitate integrated,
    interactive, and repeated practice.
  • 4. Media Literacy Education develops informed,
    reflective and engaged participants essential for
    a democratic society.
  • 5. Media Literacy Education recognizes that media
    are a part of culture and function as agents of
    socialization.
  • 6. Media Literacy Education affirms that people
    use their individual skills, beliefs and
    experiences to construct their own meanings from
    media messages.

1. Media Literacy Education requires active
inquiry and critical thinking about the messages
we receive and create.
  • Implications for practice (highlights)
  • MLEeffective media analysis is based on the Key
    Questions
  • MLEis not about replacing students perspectives
    with someone elses
  • MLEtrains students to ask WHAT is the biasnot
    IS there bias

11
2. Media Literacy Education expands the concept
of literacy (i.e., reading and writing) to
include all forms of media.
  • Implications for practice (highlights)
  • MLE encompasses both analysis and expression
  • MLE welcomes the use of a broad range of media
    texts, including popular media
  • MLE is not a political movement, it is an
    educational discipline

12
3. Media Literacy Education builds and
reinforces skills for learners of all ages. Like
print literacy, those skills necessitate
integrated, interactive, and repeated practice.
  • Implications for practice (highlights)
  • MLEuses co-learning pedagogiesteachers learn
    from students and students learn from teachers
    and classmates
  • MLEis not about inoculating people against
    presumed or actual harmful media effects
  • MLEhelps students learn to make informed
    decisions about time spent using media and which
    media they choose to use.

13
4. Media Literacy Education develops informed,
reflective and engaged participants essential for
a democratic society.
  • Implications for practice (highlights)
  • MLE invites and respects diverse points of view
  • Censorship or other efforts aimed at keeping
    selected media beyond the access of selected
    audiences do not achieve the skill-building goals
    of MLE
  • MLE is not a substitute for media (industry)
    meeting its responsibility to serve the public
    interest

14
5. Media Literacy Education recognizes that media
are a part of culture and function as agents of
socialization.
  • Implications for practice (highlights)
  • MLE integrates media texts that present diverse
    voices, perspectives and communities
  • MLE addresses topics like violence, gender,
    sexuality, racism, stereotyping, and other issues
    of representation
  • MLE does not start from a premise that media are
    inconsequential nor that media are a problem

15
6. Media Literacy Education affirms that people
use their individual skills, beliefs and
experiences to construct their own meanings from
media messages.
  • Implications for practice (highlights)
  • MLE is not about teaching students what to think
    it is about teaching them how they can arrive at
    informed choices that are most consistent with
    their own values
  • MLE helps students become aware of and reflect on
    the meaning that they make of media messages

16
The Key Questions
  • The Core Principles can also be approached as
  • KEY QUESTIONS.
  • Consider the following KEY QUESTIONS
  • when bringing Media Literacy Education
  • into your classroom.

Key Questions to ask when analyzing media
messages
20
How can you be sure your lesson is developing the
habits of inquiry and skills of expression that
are central to media literacy education?
Consider
  • Are students asking their own questions about
    media?
  • Are students asking questions when they are
    making media as well as using media?
  • Are students using multiple means of expression?
    (image, sound word)
  • Are students seeking multiple sources of
    information to determine which is most
    appropriate or reliable for the task?
  • Are students being asked to justify opinions or
    interpretations with specific, document-based
    evidence?

21
How can you be sure your lesson is developing the
habits of inquiry and skills of expression that
are central to media literacy education?
Consider
  • Are students incorporating analysis and/or
    examination of how media structures (e.g.,
    ownership, sponsorship, or distribution)
    influence how they make meaning of media
    messages?
  • Are students focusing on a media documents
    significance (including who benefits and who is
    disadvantaged) rather than trying to determine
    whether a particular piece of media is good or
    bad?
  • Are students moving through anger and cynicism
    about media to skepticism, reflection, and
    action?
