Are Online Sources Credible? Perspectives from Pre-Service Teachers


Patrice Morgan, Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, NY, USA


Media literacy empowers students with the ability to think critically about the online tools they use on a daily basis. It supports informed decisions about how they access and evaluate information located online. Media literacy aims to achieve the challenge of stimulating the desire to explore, to equalize learning, and develop critical thinking skills. In other words, it is possible to demonstrate how media literacy can be a fundamental strategic instrument in classrooms, now more than ever.
