The idea behind a successful MLP is to provide students with critical awareness of how to navigate online spaces. We in no way seek to curb their access or discourage them from being online, but rather, aim to help them understand, and if necessary question, the domains and hierarchies of the online spaces they inhabit. For generations, literacy has been referred to simply as the ability to read and write. However, in the contemporary digital age, we get most of our information through an interwoven system of media technologies that includes television, radio, the internet, newspapers, magazines, books, billboards, video games, music, and many other forms of media. The ability to read, juxtapose, and comprehend such a variety of media has become an essential skill in the twenty first century. We see media literacy as the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create, and present media in a non-biased manner by understanding the complex messages that are received from a variety of media sources and technological bases, especially with social media becoming a primary source of information for the youth.
