Description: PDE COURSE #202100026. Students are exposed to a variety of media throughout the day. Television, radio, computers, internet, social media, streaming, video games and smartphones,just a few examples of the media students interact with daily. Media is an influential force in the lives of students. However, when it comes to being able to recognize real news versus a fake news article that might appear on their feed, the majority cannot tell the difference. Teachers have a responsibility to teach students how to evaluate and analyze informational text. In order to be an informed citizen, students must know how to access, analyze, evaluate, create and act using all forms of media. It is imperative that students possess these skills so that they can make informed decisions as adults. The ability to analyze and evaluate various forms of media is also known as media literacy skills. During this 3-credit online course, participants will come to understand what media literacy is, its importance in the classroom, how to integrate media literacy skills and design lessons and activities that will develop students' media literacy skills.
