EXPERTS ON “ MEDIA EDUCATION”, “ MEDIA STUDY” OR “MEDIA LITERACY”?
MEDIA EDUCATION a broad description of all that takes place in a media-oriented classroom, whether the subject matter is English, history, geography or science. MEDIA STUDY occurs when schools or teachers organize specific courses or units to study the media. Chris Worsnop
MEDIA LITERACY is the expected outcome from work in either media education or media study. The more you learn about or through the media, the more media literacy you have. Media literacy is the skill of experiencing, interpreting/analyzing and making media products. Chris Worsnop
MEDIA EDUCATION is an ongoing process, which can develop and evolve. MEDIA LITERACY is a quality, like a tan, which can be achieved. e.g. "Every day, my media education is getting more powerful." e.g. "Yo! Check it out! I am media literate!" Neil Andersen
MEDIA EDUCATION encourages a probing approach to the world of media: Who is this message intended for? Who wants to reach this audience, and why? From whose perspective is this story told? Whose voices are heard, and whose are absent? What strategies does this message use to get my attention and make me feel included? Jane Tallim
MEDIA LITERACY is the ability to sift through and analyze the messages that inform, entertain and sell to us every day. It's the ability to bring critical thinking skills to bear on all media - from music videos and Web environments to product placement in films and virtual displays. Jane Tallim
MEDIA LITERACY is an informed, critical understanding of the mass media. It involves examining the techniques, technologies and institutions involved in media production; being able to critically analyze media messages; and recognizing the role audiences play in making meaning from those messages. Rick Shepherd
MEDIA LITERACY seeks to empower citizens and to transform their passive relationship to media into an active, critical engagement - capable of challenging the traditions and structures of a privatized, commercial media culture, and finding new avenues of citizen speech and discourse. Wally Bowen

NINE FACTORS THAT WILL MAKE MEDIA LITERACY FLOURISH
Media literacy, like other innovative programs, must be a grass-roots movement. Teachers need to take the initiative in lobbying for its inclusion in the curriculum.
2. Educational authorities must give clear support to such programs by mandating the teaching of Media Studies within the curriculum; establishing guidelines and resource books; ensuring that curricula are developed; and making certain materials available.
3. Faculties of education must hire staff capable of training future teachers in this area. There should also be academic support from tertiary institutions in the writing of curricula and in sustained consultation. 4. In-service training at the school district level must be an integral part of program implementation.
5. School districts need consultants who have expertise in media literacy, and who will establish communication networks. 6. Suitable textbooks and audio-visual materials, which are relevant to the country and/or area, must be available. 7. There must be appropriate evaluation instruments suitable to the unique attributes of Media Studies.
8. A support organization must be established for the purposes of workshops, conferences, dissemination of newsletters, and developing curriculum units. Such a professional organization must cut across school boards and districts to involve a cross-section of people interested in media literacy.
9. Because media literacy involves such a diversity of skills and expertise, there must be collaboration between teachers, parents, researchers and media professionals.
