K-12 Media Literacy No Panacea for Fake News, Report Argues

Monica Bulger, Patrick Davison

Coverage of Data & Society Researcher Monica Bulger and Research Analyst Patrick Davison’s new report, The Promises, Challenges, and Futures of Media Literacy.

“Written by researchers Monica Bulger and Patrick Davison, the document aims to provide a framework for better understanding current media-literacy efforts, and offers the field recommendations for moving forward.

Among the issues raised: the need to better understand the modern media environment, which is heavily driven by algorithm-based personalization on social-media platforms, and the need to be more systematic about evaluating the impact of various media-literacy strategies and interventions.”
