Why Media Literacy Goes Beyond Trusted Sources


On this MarketScale TV interview, Todd Brekhus, Chief Product Officer for edtech solution Renaissance, joins Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin for a discussion on the importance of media literacy in today’s education landscape, and how solutions like Renaissance are working to make it a seamless part of K-12 curriculum.

“A lack of information can be damaging. A lack of knowledge is very damaging to a society and culture. We need more information, we need more knowledge, we need more curiosity.” – Todd Brekhus

Brekhus helps explain why media literacy is still an issue in today’s schools and how a lack of critical analysis in content consumption can have domino effects for students. He and Litwin go in depth on Renaissance’s strategies for media literacy, including what defines a source as reliable, how power analysis and understanding bias, as well as understanding content as a creator, encourages media literacy, and how educators can integrate media literacy into their curriculum in a way that feels frictionless for the student, as well as engaging and insightful?

Renaissance’s learning platforms, which are used in over one-third of US schools and in more than 100 countries worldwide, have made media literacy a key part of their solutions, developing a proprietary media literacy tool, myON News. Earlier this year, the company offered unlimited, free access to its myON News service from February 1–7. Brekhus also offers insights on the impact of this campaign.
