3) Maybe you like to go to the gym and work out. Most likely you will see folks working out with IPods or have a television on. I see more people on their phones or game systems than I see people reading a book. Look at today’s teenagers. They short write everything and misspell words on purpose. Media has dumbed down our society so to speak. These teens graduating today have some of the lowest scores in America. As technology increases, it seems as though society dumbs down. 4) Television its self can be bad. It seems as a lot of children watch shows like Sponge Bob, or something equally strange. The hidden messages in these are outstanding to me. I would rather see my son playing outside on toys with cars, than I would see a 10 year old with an IPad. Things like these make our children ungrateful I think. They can have and IPhone, IPod, IPad and still be upset that they don’t have an Xbox or PlayStation. Media is drilling in to their heads that they need these things. How does media literacy help with responsible media consumption? If you can be literate in the Media Consumption it will help you understand the News better. Media literacy by definition is a “Repertoire of competences that enable people to analyze, evaluate, and create messages in a wide variety of media modes, genres, and forms. Education for media literacy often uses an inquiry-based pedagogic model that encourages people to ask questions about what they watch, hear, and read.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_literacy

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
