Media Literacy Guide

This Guide will support Media Literacy education with the intention to promote awareness of media influence and take an active stance towards both consuming and creating media.

Developing Critical Thinking Skills

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, Critical Thinking is "the objective, systematic, and rational analysis and evaluation of factual evidence in order to form a judgement on a subject, issue, etc."

Critical Thinking is one of the key skills necessary for developing strong Media and Digital Literacy abilities. It is essential that every media/digital source is objectively and systemically evaluated for accuracy and truth. Try to use tools such as the Critical Thinking Cheatsheet to evaluate the information being analyzed.
