Frank Baker, Media Literacy Advocate/Trainer, Media Literacy Education Award

For more than 20 years, Frank Baker has been promoting media literacy. From conducting annual workshops, to creating the Media Literacy Clearinghouse Web site, to contributing to a national media literacy listserv, Baker is spreading the messages and resources teachers and parents need to help develop a media literate generation.

In this podcast (MP3, 18MB), Baker talks about media literacy, which he defines as, “critical thinking about media messages,” and its importance in the classroom.

Baker’s Media Literacy Clearinghouse Web site, called by some “the internet encyclopedia of media literacy,” was designed to help teachers understand what media literacy is, where it fits in instruction, and what resources are available to help them teach it.
