We try to spend quality time together as a family. We try to read books, hang out with friends, and engage with our community. But let’s be realistic, the world we live in encourages us to spend at least as much time in front of the TV, computer, and smartphone. Media literacy is an ongoing process of questioning what we’re told – it has to grow with technology and, because of this, it is a process that never truly ends.
When you’re bombarded by media, it’s important to keep an open and questioning mind to help you sift through what you’re really being told. People of all ages should consistently exercise and practice their media literacy skills.
