Tools for teaching media and information literacy

Mock Turtle writes “To celebrate International Literacy Day (which was September 8) and the beginning of the United Nations Literacy Decade (2003-2012), Canada’s Media Awareness Network web site currently features practical Internet and media literacy resources that public and school libraries can use in their programming. The site includes interactive tools such as “Jo Cool or Jo Fool,” in which students tour a set of mock web sites and test their surfing savvy.”
