This site has done a remarkable job of organizing the ever-growing area of media
literacy. It features four main sections. Section A includes the Teacher's
Desk, Media Literacy Organizations, Professional Collaboration, and Events.
Section B is for Readings in Media Literacy. Section C is directed towards
Media Industry and Media Literacy Issues. Section D holds the Parents Corner
and a Special Folder for acknowledging associates, users and reviewers. The
site is clear and easy to navigate. Higher Ed. faculty could certainly use this
as a beginning resource for research, position papers, and teaching assignments
in education, teacher education and library/media education. Information is
updated regularly. The site has received no less than seven online awards.
