Vicki and Geraldine discuss why media literacy is having a moment. When Parent Zone asked teachers to define media literacy, many couldn’t do so. What do we mean by media literacy - and what does it look like in practice? Talking points: Media literacy has been yoked to the Online Safety Bill from the outset - but now it’s been taken out of the Bill, to be dealt with elsewhere. Is the government downgrading media literacy?What’s the difference between online safety and media literacy?Is media literacy too abstract a concept?Do governments really want their citizens to be media literate - or is that a bit too troublesome?Tech Shock is a Parent Zone production.
