Benefits of Media Information literacy

We have listed some benefits of being media and information literate below.

  • Media and information literacy can help people:

    • Develop critical thinking skills
    • Recognize bias, spin, misinformation, and lies
    • Evaluate media messages based on their own experiences, skills, beliefs, and values
    • Create and distribute their own media messages

  • How to tell what is true and what is fake

    • Pause and reflect before forwarding or sharing a message
    • Ask whoever sent you the message, "where is this from?"
    • Verify or crosscheck with credible sources.

  • What to know about Fake news

    • Fake news may look like news, but it contains lies and distortions or intentionally omits facts.
    • Every piece of misinformation helps shape our opinions and our world view, so overall, the harm can be very real.
    • Fake news stories created with the intention of influencing public opinion are usually very powerful and effective in playing on emotions.
    • Even after fake news stories have been debunked or explained, they often continue to influence people’s beliefs and attitudes and remain in their subconscious.
