Summary: Douglas Kellner and Jeff Share talk about their book on incorporating critical media literacy in education. The book provides a scholarly presentation of media literacy theory, practice, origins, frameworks, and applications. Critical media literacy prepares students to think deeply and analyze information through emerging forms of media.
Opinion: I think critical media literacy is extremely important in today’s world. So much information online is share quickly and without edit, thus we need better skills today to analyze the information we find online. I think these type of skills can go as far as helping teenagers who are struggling with confidence because they see highly edited Photoshop images of people on Instagram and in advertisements.
