Description

What is the difference between a digital story and vodcast? Why are libraries checking out camcorders and audio recorders? Why is this student asking me for help with iMovie? In this lecture, I will explain the concept and importance of media literacy, approaches to media literacy education, and argue that it is absolutely essential that public, k-12, and academic libraries provide intentional media literacy programming. To support this case, I will describe Minnesota's media literacy support model, with example student media projects that illustrate the pedagogical benefits and soft skill set development of these emerging modes of student scholarship.
