The National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE.net) aims to make media literacy highly valued and widely practiced as an essential life skill. In a mediated world, all people are media creators and consumers who deserve guidance on how to cultivate mindful, empowering relationships with media.

Paragraph 1, Sentence 2 0

We view media literacy–the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create, and act using all forms of communication -as an essential literacy. Media literacy education is the ongoing development of habits of inquiry and skills of expression necessary for people to be critical thinkers, thoughtful and effective communicators, and informed and responsible members of society. Developing these habits and skills is vital to civic life.

Christina C Christina C (Jun 14 2023 1:15PM) : Agree, and a question [Edited] more

I am looking also at the ways that the term “media” is used across different statements like this – such as NCTE’s literacy in a digital age definition: https://ncte.org/statement/nctes-definition-literacy-digital-age/

Here they mention media in the context of use/consumption (ie. Do learners apply ethical practices when using media?) … Then we see it in “multimedia” which is more about creating … and then in the professionals in the mix (ie. Do learners have opportunities to engage with and learn from school media and library professionals)

Paul A (Jun 20 2023 10:36AM) : There is also this from NAMLE https://namle.net/resources/media-literacy-defined/ These questions are also really helpful: https://namle.net/resources/key-questions-for-analyzing-media/ [Edited] more

“To clarify what we mean when we talk about media literacy, NAMLE offers these definitions:”

“Media refers to all electronic or digital means and print or artistic visuals used to transmit messages. Literacy is the ability to encode and decode symbols and to synthesize and analyze messages. Media literacy is the ability to encode and decode the symbols transmitted via media and synthesize, analyze and produce mediated messages.”

“Media education is the study of media, including ‘hands-on’ experiences and media production. Media literacy education is the educational field dedicated to teaching the skills associated with media literacy.”

Paul A and/or Background Knowledge Tutor (for any text) (Jun 20 2023 10:45AM) : I feel like there is a lot more to "literacy" than encoding and decoding. more
Background Knowledge Tutor (for any text) with Paul A's edits:
Background Knowledge Tutor (for any text)
Provides important background information for understanding the text

These sentences are important to understanding the text because they provide definitions of key terms, such as media, literacy, media literacy, and media education. These definitions explain what is meant by “media literacy” and the purpose of media literacy education, which is the focus of the text. The background information that would be important for one to understand this text more deeply is knowledge of the impact that media has on individuals and society, such as the role it plays in shaping our values, beliefs, and attitudes. Additionally, knowledge of different forms of media and communication would be beneficial in understanding the way messages can be encoded and decoded and the way that media can be used to produce and transmit these messages.

This is starting to get to it. Literacy defines who we are, how we see ourselves, and how we understand others. Encoding and decoding messages is only a basic level of literacy. Look at the personal health impact of social media on all of us, but especially on youth. So literacy has to do with how we PARTICIPATE with others while encoding and decoding.

Paul A (Jun 16 2023 12:22PM) : These five words: "access, analyze, evaluate, create, and act" seem to paint a continuum of media literacy, from a consumer to participator. more

How often does our work with students orbit around the first three words here. It’s often not until youth are creating an acting with media that the lessons of analysis and evaluation take hold.

Just noting this. … Also connected in this NCTE Media Lit document (https://ncte.org/statement/media_education/) to production and creation of media most specifically.

These core principles articulate NAMEL’s position on media literacy education and illuminate the complex dynamics between individuals, media experiences, media institutions, and the systems and structures that shape our world. The additional Implications for Practice document highlights distinguishing features of effective media literacy education. Our intent is for these Core Principles and Implications for Practice to build greater awareness and help scale media literacy education in all facets of life in the U.S.

The insights shared here will help communities, schools, out-of-school programs for youth, and other stakeholders in media literacy education commit to a set of core principles and best practices. Educators and youth-serving professionals can use these documents to engage in deeper conversations, to develop, structure, and improve their media literacy work. We hope these documents help media literacy education practitioners think about media literacy’s value, understand their own practice, gain the knowledge they need to design meaningful learning experiences, and develop a culture of media literacy in their respective organizations.

Tim M Tim M (Jun 16 2023 12:42PM) : From a teacher perspective, they seem more valuable as a standard to refer to throughout a design and teaching process, rather than as a starting point. [Edited] more

I don’t think these would be especially useful to someone wanting to get started with teaching media literacy, but work well as a “check in” for someone already in the process to make sure they aren’t missing any key pieces.

Christina C Christina C (Jun 16 2023 8:08AM) : Why are these connections important? more

One of the more significant updates to the Core Principles is its emphasis on how media literacy education can support learners as they understand the media’s impact on their world—from power structures to democracy itself (principles 7, 8, 9). Why are these connections important in your subject areas, and what might these lessons look like in an average classroom?

Paul A and/or Another View Teammate (for any text) (Jun 16 2023 2:23PM) : I'm all for expanding literacy as long as it is really an opening up to adding media into what else to look for in a youth's abilities beyond reading and writing, talking and listening. But dumping media into the "literacy" bin is fraught. more
Another View Teammate (for any text) with Paul A's edits:
Another View Teammate (for any text)
Provides a counter-argument, suggests evidence and how to find sources

Some might argue that while media literacy is an important ability to have, reading and writing are still important skills for youth to have before integrating multiple literacies. Without a strong foundation in basic literacy, it will be harder for young people to engage in informed media practices.

Another concern is that media literacy will be subjected to a similar deficit model that a lot of reading and writing literacy suffers from.

How do we use this as an opportunity to grow our conceptions of literacy learning and not move worn-out perspectives about teaching reading and writing into media?

Thinking Interdependently Coach (for any text) with Paul A's edits:
Thinking Interdependently Coach (for any text)
Helps us to identify this Habit of Mind in the text.

Yes, “landscape” can be a helpful analogy. When it comes to understanding the landscape of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its implications for the world, a helpful way of Thinking Interdependently is to look at it from multiple perspectives and combine them to gain a better understanding. With this in mind, it is important to bring together many diverse voices, because different perspectives can capture different aspects of the landscape of AI. When considering the landscape of AI, it can be helpful to look at it through the lens of global citizens, researchers, technologists, educators, and impact makers. By engaging with different perspectives and utilizing a collective knowledge, people are better able to understand the implications for the world and ultimately make better decisions.

    1.3 MLE guides learners to participate in a broad range of media experiences-both in person and online-and across print, visual, audio, and digital media.

    Tim M Tim M (Jun 16 2023 12:50PM) : I often see teachers use contemporary forms of media with an eye towards sparking engagement in a more traditional literacy lesson, but don’t view a TikTok as a form of media worth learning to critically read in its own right. Useful mindset shift here. [Edited] more

    I often see teachers use contemporary forms of media with an eye towards sparking engagement in a more traditional literacy lesson, but don’t view a TikTok as a form of media worth learning to critically read in its own right.

    It’s worth investigating a TikTok not only because it is relevant and engaging for students (though it is that), but also because learning to critically read and engage with short-form video content is, at this point, just as important as other forms of more traditional literacy.

  3. Envisions all individuals as capable learners who use their background, knowledge, skills, and beliefs to create meaning from media experiences.
    2.1 MLE teaches that all media experiences are constructed and prepares people to engage in critical analysis and reflection of these experiences.
    2.2 MLE acknowledges that people use their individual skills, beliefs, and backgrounds to construct personal meaning from media experiences.
    2.3 MLE helps learners identify biases within their own and others’ media experiences.
    2.4 MLE helps learners become aware of and reflect on the meaning they make from media experiences, including how those meanings relate to their own values and beliefs.
    2.5 MLE views media analysis as a process of evidence-based, open-ended exploration, rather than one through which single “correct” or pre-determined media interpretations are revealed.

  5. Promotes teaching practices that prioritize curious, open-minded, and self-reflective inquiry while emphasizing reason, logic, and evidence.
    3.1 MLE recognizes that how we teach matters as much as what we teach.
    3.2 MLE uses co-learning and constructivist pedagogies in which teachers learn from learners and vice versa.
    3.3 MLE asks learners to consider how emotions evoked through media experiences can be examined within frameworks of reason, evidence, logic, and metacognition.
    3.4 MLE uses group discussion and analysis of media experiences to help learners understand and appreciate different perspectives and points of view.
    3.5 MLE prioritizes media creation as an essential learning practice in building media literacy skills

    4.1 MLE teaches that all media experiences are constructed and uses foundational media analysis concepts to help learners effectively analyze
    those constructions.
    4.2 MLE teaches learners that each medium has unique language codes, conventions, and constructions used to convey meaning.
    4.3 MLE teaches learners to ask questions that will enable them to gain a deeper and/or more sophisticated understanding of media experiences.
    4.4 MLE encourages learners to question and reflect on all media experiences, regardless of personal preferences, values, and biases.

From this text, we can see that media literacy skills are essential for individuals to be responsible useres and creators of media in our society. It involves many different forms of literacies which should be integrated and cross-curricular. It requires learning habits of inquiry and expression, and developing critical thinking skills. In addition, it promotes self-reflection, examining biases and purpose when engaging with media, and ethical responsibilities when creating and sharing media. Let’s keep reading and thinking to see if there are any more important lessons to be learned.
