Media and Information Literacy

Olivia L. Cantor

Media and Information Literacy introduces students to the basic concepts of media and information as instruments for empowering people in becoming responsible users and competent producers of information and media content. The pedagogy of the book is a combination of theoretical and technical know-how, all culled from academic research and practical hands-on experience. Designed for students with no experience in using media technologies and equipment, the lessons in this book will help the students understand how to be “media literate” while engendering them to the importance of promoting independent and accessible media and information systems.
