So I've been trying to edit my project for my Web-based multimedia class with Professor Holan, and I've been going back and forth with how to/if to introduce media literacy. My original focus was going to be introducing the TOOLS for producing moving media and still media ... I am a proponent of having the vocabulary down before talking about a subject, especially one as in-depth as media literacy.
Are there suggestions on how to introduce media literacy, and its terminology in the middle of a school year (assuming that students havent' heard of such terms as 'white space', 'camera angle', 'lighting', etc.) yet? And if so how to do it thoroughly and quickly. Suggestions needed/welcome!!
