Notes

Abstract: Citizens have long needed to critically consume stories from local and national newspapers, radio programs, and television broadcasts, but 21st century citizens now encounter many more media outlets. Social media in particular gives citizens opportunities to contribute to the media ecology as they produce, curate, or spread news and information. Teachers can help young children to prepare to navigate, interpret, and create stories across this transmedia terrain.3 Before turning to how to enact a four-part framework for doing so, I will describe two democratic media literacy skills—transmedia judgment and remixing—that teachers can model and teach to help students as 21st century citizens.
