📑 Critical Media Literacy

Bookmarked Critical Media Literacy by an author

Critical media literacy has readers interrogating text to examine and challenge the dominant power structures that audiences work to make meaning between the dominant, oppositional, & negotiated readings of media.

Ian O’Byrne continues his discussion of the importance of critical literacy for students today in response to the changing ways that networked publics consume and critique information online. It is interesting to compare O’Byrne’s prompts for interrogating texts with Mike Caulfield’s four moves. Another interesting read on this topic is Clare Wardle’s lessons on for the age of disinformation.
