You-Tubing our way to media literacy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Visual media play an increasingly prominent role in daily life, perhaps for none more so than the millennial generation. Media literacy, the ability to critically analyze and evaluate information across a variety of media contexts, is a valuable lifelong skill and one that librarians have the opportunity to cultivate among students. Critical thinking abilities that are fostered through information literacy instruction can be widely applied to a variety of real life situations, and by intentionally introducing visual media into instruction, media literacy can be explicitly addressed.
