What is media literacy?

Media Literacy is a 21st century approach to education. It provides a framework to access, analyze, evaluate, create and participate with messages in a variety of forms — from print to video to the Internet. Media literacy builds an understanding of the role of media in society as well as essential skills of inquiry and self-expression necessary for citizens of a democracy.

With UpSavvy, students will learn about accessing, analyzing, evaluating, producing, and interpreting digital media.
