Last week a school near me suffered a social media mishap involving its students. This, an increasingly common byproduct of our day, unfortunately catches many a school by surprise. So I received this call: "Help! Can you come to our school to give an "Internet Safety" presentation? And can you keep it to under an hour?"
Elections are far from the only chance we have to think about media literacy. It's all around us and affects almost every decision we make ranging from what we buy, how and whether we worship and what we decide to read, watch and listen to. And, in the age of social media, it also affects what we post.
