Media literacy and data literacy are related in many different ways. Media literacy looks at media and how it influences our reality. Data literacy is the understanding of how platforms like social media apps and beyond interact with society. It is essential to know that much of the information we encounter on a daily basis can be misleading. A better understanding of media and data literacy can help someone navigate through various media. Many sources out there are reliable, but when it comes to knowing which sources are reliable, it can become tricky. That is why it is essential to get a better understanding of media and data literacy. It’s important to recognize the intersectionality of media and data literacy with issues of race, gender, and social class. Understanding how these literacies intersect with broader social issues can provide a more holistic approach to media and data literacy. Knowing even just a little about both can greatly improve one’s knowledge of the media we all consume today.
