Toolkit for Media Literacy

About the Toolkit

The Media Literacy Toolkit has been designed to support educators as they introduce students to the process of finding, organizing, using, producing, evaluating, distributing information in a variety of media formats, ways to work ethically and professionally with the resources, and how to adjust to rapidly changing technological environments and tools. 

WHO IS THIS DESIGNED FOR?

This user-friendly toolkit is for educators wishing to embark on a learner-centered, job-embedded approach to implementing digital citizenship activities.  It can be used across all grade levels and content areas.

What is Included

The toolkit provides resources for new learning, questions for reflection, and tasks for skill development organized into 6 sections:

  • Organizations Supporting Media Literacy Education
  • Educator Toolkits
  • Curriculum Resources 
  • Interactive Student Apps, Experiences, and Challenges
  • Professional Development for Media Literacy
  • Tools to Support Media Literacy

HOW TO USE THE TOOLKIT

This toolkit can be used by teachers for their own professional learning or within the classroom by students. Each section of the toolkit can be explored independently or the entire toolkit can be implemented in the order presented to serve as a comprehensive resource for implementing media literacy in your classroom or school.
