    Media Literacy for Children: a Tool for Social Justice

    Media literacy for children has received a lot of attention this year due, in large part, to the US presidential elections and the subsequent focus on the phenomenon of fake news or fake news. While media literacy can be used to train children (and adults) to detect unreliable news, discipline is even more effective. Children are bombarded daily with media messages (advertisements, television, digital environments, books, etc.) and require the tools to make sense of all this and, in the process, become agents of change.
