What is Media Literacy?

The National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) defines media literacy as: “The ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create and act using all forms of communication. In its simplest terms, media literacy builds upon the foundation of traditional literacy and offers new forms of reading and writing."

"Media literacy empowers people to be critical thinkers and makers, effective communicators and active citizens.”
