digital storytelling,  empowerment,  media literacy

Two ages of media literacy

Reinforcement of the importance of creation* in media literacy today by Jason Ohler:

  • Media Literacy 1.0 – the era of mass media – concerns the ability to identify and evaluate the techniques of media persuasion.
  • Media Literacy 2.0 – the era of digital participation – the ability to identify, evaluate and apply the techniques of media persuasion.

* OFCOM defines media literacy as: “the ability to access, understand and CREATE communications in a variety of contexts”.
