Indie Grits Labs offers a variety of Media Education programs, built around the tenets of media literacy.
What Is Media Literacy?
Our goal is to provide students with the 21st century skills necessary to succeed in our increasingly media-driven world. Media Literacy encompasses the informed creating, consuming, evaluating, and communicating of media in all its forms. Essentially, being Media Literate means knowing how to read media, teaching the language of film, video, and screen culture. Not only does this involve the development of problem-solving and technical skills, but also analytical thinking, such as critical viewing and comprehension.
