What is the difference between media literacy and critical media literacy?

I may be very wrong in my answer, but I think that media literacy is when a person is competant in understanding and deriving information and ideas from sources such as television or the Internet. Our ideology is not contained in thinking that our information can only come from books.

Critical media literacy allows for more analysis and criticism on some of the popular media. It allows those that are studying the media to be more subjective than objective in collecting data.

Hello. My name is Jessica Sandy and I'm from Clarksburg. I am currently substitute teaching in Harrison county in addition to taking 9 hours toward my Master's Degree. I love spending time with my three year old daughter, Amelia. She keeps me very busy.

I hope that I learn to use more ways to incorporate technology into my classroom by taking this class.
