How many times a day do you check your newsfeed or discuss the news with friends? We receive regular updates and notifications from so many different sources—messengers, emails, and the news media, for example. It’s trendy to “be informed”, so we willingly open ourselves up to as much information as possible. If we are not careful, this information can mislead and overwhelm us!
Just as coffee helps our bodies stay awake, we need critical thinking to keep our minds focused and alert. We believe that like coffee has become a part of many people’s daily routine, media literacy should as well.
