The very old and very new challenge of news literacy

Stephanie Craft, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

“News comes from a distance; it comes helter-skelter in inconceivable confusion; it deals with matters that are not easily understood; it arrives and is assimilated by busy and tired people who must take what is given to them.”1

Nearly 100 years ago, when Walter Lippmann published his accounts of the immense difficulties of reconciling “the world outside and the pictures in our heads,” most news came “from a distance” via newspapers and magazines.

And yet, even with this limited range and number of news purveyors, in Liberty and the News and, later, the highly influential Public Opinion, Lippmann describes “inconceivable confusion” among the busy and tired people who had to make sense of it. Lippmann’s earlier career included a stint as a propagandist (and a very successful one) for the Creel Committee during the First World War, so he knew something about the construction of messages and the many forces along the path from sender to receiver that could shape their meaning, rendering the world outside opaque and unknowable. How was democracy going to work, Lippmann wondered, if people were incapable of being adequately informed about important issues?…

News literacy in the digital age: challenges and opportunities

Ognyan Seizov, visiting fellow, Comparative Media Studies and Writing, MIT


The advent of Web 2.0 was arguably the greatest game-changer for the practices, conventions, and scope of mass communication. In its aftermath, journalistic education and journalistic practice need a thorough revision in order to continue serving their socially assigned purposes.

In the wake of this sorely needed update, professional journalism finds itself facing a multitude of technical, conventional, conceptual, and societal challenges. Some of them are truly recent while others find their roots in previous stages of mass media development, but the fact remains: today’s news personnel are in a digital perfect storm, and for the first time in the history of mass media, professionals get to learn from amateurs….

Placing trust in others: how college students access and assess news and what it means for news literacy education

Elia Powers, Towson University and Michael Koliska, Auburn University


This mixed-methods study (survey and subsequent in-depth interviews) investigates the role of personal influence in how students (n=135) across disciplines at a U.S. university find news, evaluate the credibility of news sources, and form their opinions about the news media. Specifically, this study explores how opinion leaders and primary socialization sources shape students’ understanding and use of news at this stage of their development. Findings show that students place great trust in those around them to access and assess news, some- times at the expense of making independent choices and judgements about the content they consume. Implications for news literacy education are discussed.

News literacy: Ever had someone say, ‘I’ll know it when I see it’?

..or When news literacy takes center stage

Wendy Wallace, Faculty, Grants Manager, Poynter Institute

My son joined me recently at a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prizes. The evening event, organized by The Poynter Institute, chronicled the impact of social justice journalism through the decades. We heard how white newspaper editors in the South took stands against segregation and de- cried lynchings and brutality, risking their livelihoods and their safety for what they knew was right.

On the way home, my son shared how impressed he was, how moved and inspired. This from a 15-year-old who dozed off during a Cirque du Soleil acrobatics and special effects arena show a few weeks before…..

The survival of student journalism: exploring new models for sustainability

Ed Madison, University of Oregon

The strength of a democracy is often said to be inextricably linked with the strength of its free press. Yet recent news reports suggest that the future of the student journalism in the United States is in jeopardy. In May 2013, The New York Times found that only 1 in 8 New York public high schools had a student newspaper (Hu 2013). A month later, National Public Radio aired a report titled “High School Newspapers: An Endangered Species” (Simon 2013).

This downward turn in student journalism could influence the future of the mainstream press. Ellen Austin, Dow Jones Journalism Educator of the Year (2012) says, “Fifty per- cent of future journalists start in high school and seventy-five percent of minority journalists start in high school” (Interview 2011). Changes at the scholastic level are reflected by a sharp decline in professional journalism jobs. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 13% decrease in journalism positions for the reporting period between 2012 and 2022, resulting in 7,200 fewer jobs (Occupational Outlook 2012)….

Understanding news: the impact of media literacy education on teenagers’ news literacy

Mariska Kleemans, Radboud University Nijmegen and Gonnie Eggink, Windesheim University of Applied Sciences


Media literacy education is presented as an answer to the increasing demand for active citizenship in democratic societies. Consequently, educational programmes that empower teenagers to deal with the opportunities and risks that media pose are developing fast. Against this background, a number of secondary schools in The Netherlands started specific media literacy programmes, but it is unexplored to what extent these programmes are effective in promoting news media literacy among teenagers. To investigate this, a survey was conducted to measure news media literacy levels among more than 1,300 students that did or did not participate in a media literacy programme. Results show that media literacy programmes promote teenagers’ news media literacy to a certain ex- tent. However, the contribution of media literacy programmes to news literacy is small. Moreover, findings show that the level of news media literacy was moderate, and that educational level and age were stronger predictors of the student’s level of news media literacy than media literacy education itself. There is thus room for improvement with regard to delivering (news) media literacy education across school levels in the Netherlands.

Developing news literacy curricula in the age of social media in Hong Kong, Vietnam and Myanmar

Masato Kajimoto, University of Hong Kong


This paper comparatively analyzes the pat- terns of social media usage among the students in news literacy-related courses in three Asian countries and ex- plores how news literacy educators have incorporated, or should incorporate in the future, their students’ digital news habits into their curricula under the different socio- cultural and political environment. It specifically focuses on the degree of press freedom and the roles of social media platforms in news distribution and sharing in Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Myanmar. By cross-examining the distinctive characteristics of educational circumstances under 1) the relatively free media ecology in Hong Kong, 2) the heavily restricted media environment in Vietnam, and 3) the transitional and volatile press conditions in Myanmar, the study identifies common patterns of news consumption across the borders and discuss how the region-specific issues need to be pedagogically integrated into the development and modification of news literacy curricula.

Stay tuned St. Louis: a case study in educational collaboration

Joy Jenkins and Mimi Perreault, University of Missouri

As journalism schools focus on providing students with practical training for a changing media environment, immersive education structured in real-world newsrooms can serve as a learning lab.

Studies have suggested that teaching approaches that allow students to engage with community members within an established network (Barabasi 2003; Beckett 2008; Castells 2000; Jarvis 2006), rather than creating content with an imagined audience in mind, can enhance students’ understanding of journalism’s democratic function as a component of news literacy (Mensing 2010). This emphasis may also introduce students to newswork incorporating the values of civic journalism, as socialization within newsrooms has shown to play a key role in journalists’ acceptance of these practices (McDevitt, Gassaway, and Perez 2002). Although journalism programs have used hands-on experiences to instill tacit knowledge of the roles and functions of public journalism and develop more civic-minded practitioners (Haas 2000; Nip 2007), public-journalism training should also incorporate multimedia techniques. Further, multiplatform approaches to storytelling should allow students to apply a variety of converged skills while also interacting with audiences (Condra 2006), opportunities that professional media environments can easily provide…..

When teens create the news: examining the impact of PBS/news hour student reporting labs

Renee Hobbs, University of Rhode Island / Media Education Lab


The PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs program ( connects middle and high school students to local PBS stations and broadcast news professionals in their communities to report on critical issues from a youth perspective. Through a project-based, active learning model, students learn how to synthesise information and investigate important topics, while building media literacy, communication and problem-solving skills necessary for the knowledge economy of the 21st century. The program involves more than 50 schools and community centers across the country and each site has adapted the pro- gram to meet the particular educational needs of its students, faculty and community. The intended goals of the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs program are to help students gain a better understanding of what constitutes news; evaluate the credibility of the information they receive via news content; strengthen their appreciation for the norms of professional journalism; and build skills and confidence as communicators through learning how to produce news content in a collaborative real-world environment where what they create may be viewed by an au- thentic large audience and publication becomes the ultimate assessment. Findings from pre-post quantitative research conducted with nearly 500 high school students who participated in the program reveal the development of media production skills that involved gathering and synthesising information, using digital media and technology to communicate ideas in the format of a broadcast news package, and engaging in cycles of revision and feedback to polish their work. This study found significant increases in collaboration and teamwork competencies, including intel- lectual curiosity, the ability to give and receive feedback, and confidence in self-expression and advocacy.
