WHAT IS MEDIA FLUENCY AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Media Fluency is the ability for people to read, write, speak and make meaning in the language of media. Media fluent individuals are media literate and have the confidence in engaging critically with media communications; making connections to ideas, people and process; and producing traditional and new ways to communicate in today’s society.
When we talk about media, we mean any communication through a medium, such as social media, visual communication (photos, memes, flyers, etc.), coding, AI, podcasts, algorithms, infographics, maps, music, videos, slideshows, blogs, videos, websites, and the list goes on.
At Media Savvy Citizens, we believe successful media education and technology integration can benefit individuals and communities seeking to improve their ability to succeed
in today’s technical, fast-evolving world.
