ALBUQUERQUE, NM—Media Literacy Project’s document “Introduction to Media Literacy” was adopted by Adidas and Journalism Education Foundation, which will potentially expand MLP’s reach to tens of thousands more people.  The article resides on MLP’s website to educate the public about media literacy concepts and skills.

Adidas uses the document internally as a resource for employees in a persuasion unit. Journalism Education Foundation is adding the document to its news literacy unit.

“We are so pleased to expose more people to media literacy concepts. Media literacy is an essential tool for a 21st century education. We’re glad that Adidas and Journalism Education Foundation agree,” Andrea Quijada, executive director of Media Literacy Project, said.
