Teaching Media Literacy through Contemporary Issues Cover
This book explores the meaning of citizenship generally and how it translates to today’s digital world. Students consider how we interact in the digital world, the effect of what we post online and the concept of “digital footprints”. They also learn to analyse information they encounter online, with a particular focus on recognising and differentiating between significant features of social media such as fake news, propaganda and satire. As they work through the topics in this resource, students apply what they have learnt to their own media projects.
