Media Smarts is home to one of the worlds most comprehensive collections of media education and Internet literacy resources. MNets work is based on the belief that to be functionally literate in the world today-to be able to "read" the messages that inform, entertain and sell to us daily-young people need critical thinking skills. To that end, Mnet examines a wide range of media, including television, film, video games, newspapers, advertising and popular music. The Educators section includes teaching units and a variety of supporting materials.
