Nerdy Book Club hits it on the nose once again with a downright practical and eminently do-able suggestions to support media literacy.
“…Human knowledge currently doubles every thirteen months, and will soon double every twelve hours, so it is impossible for teachers and parents to keep pace with the flood of information hurling through cyberspace, broadcast on television and radio, reported in newspapers, and discussed on social media or by word of mouth.
According to Calkins, the role of the adult must change. With the rise of the Common Core, it is no longer enough for teachers (and parents) to impart their wisdom. We must show kids how to access, synthesize, apply, compare, and contrast information to develop their own view of the world.”
