Media Literacy is an important strategy to prepare students for online activities and to meet the requirements of our Provincial Program of Studies. The Media Awareness Network (MNet), is home to one of the world's most comprehensive collections of media education and Internet literacy resources.
What is MNet?
MNet is a Canadian nonprofit organization that has been pioneering the development of media literacy programs since its incorporation in 1996. Members of our team have backgrounds in education, journalism, mass communications, and cultural policy. Working out of offices in Ottawa and Montreal, we promote media and Internet education by producing online programs and resources, working in partnership with Canadian and international organizations, and speaking to audiences across Canada and around the world.
MNet focuses its efforts on equipping adults with information and tools to help young people to understand how the media work, how the media may affect their lifestyle choices and the extent to which they, as consumers and citizens, are being well informed. MNet also provides reference materials for use by adults and youth alike in examining media issues from a variety of perspectives.
