By Fojo and Bahir Dar University
In a global media culture, people need three skills in order to be engaged citizens of a democracy: critical thinking, self-expression and participation. Media literacy in stills these core skills, enabling future citizens to sort through political packaging, understand and contribute to public discourse, and, ultimately, make informed decisions in the voting booth. In this regard, Bahir Dar University has released a media literacy module in collaboration with IMS-Fojo that can benefit people in identifying different types of media and their messages, thereby strengthening the role of media in society.
