ESL and Media Literacy. While teaching English as a second language isn’t often a focus of discussions for media literacy, the number of ESL students alone should argue for more emphasis and visibility for this educational imperative. CML interviewed Raul Alberto Mora, Ph.D., who emphasizes language learning and critical media literacy in his work with university students and preservice teachers in Medellin, Colombia, as well as Camilo Andres Dominguez-Cruz, a native of Colombia, who now teaches ESL in a North Carolina primary school, Sallie B. Howard School for the Arts and Education. Find it here.

"Developing Digital and Media Literacies in Children and Adolescents," by Kristen Hawley Turner, Tessa Jolls, Michelle Schira Hagerman, William O'Byrne, Troy Hicks, Bobbie Eisenstock and Kristine E. Pytash, Pediatrics 2017. Learning environments no longer depend on seat time in factory-like school settings. Learning happens anywhere, anytime, and productivity in the workplace depends on digital and media literacy. To create the human capital necessary for success and sustainability in a technology-driven world, we must invest in the literacy practices of our youth.
