    10. 10. <ul><li>Today's definition of literacy is more than reading and writing. In order to be functionally literate in our media-saturated world, children and young people – in fact, all of us – have to be able to read the messages that daily inform us, entertain us and sell to us. As the Internet becomes a fact of life, the critical thinking skills that help young people navigate through traditional media are even more important. </li></ul><ul><li>Media Awareness Network, (2006, June 21) </li></ul>
    11. 11. <ul><li>To be literate is to have the ability to read, understand, analyse , explain, critically evaluate, create and appreciate the ways in which these texts make meaning. </li></ul>Consumers : Analyse and interpret meaning Producers : Convey meaning by being creative with literacy and design **Leading Edge Industry Examples**
