Media literacy is the ability to critically evaluate information.

At PressReader, we believe knowledge is power. Now, more than ever, readers around the world are witnessing a dramatic increase in misinformation through digital communication. The constant stream of content we engage with largely determines our perceptions, beliefs and attitudes.  

Knowing what content is correct is essential. That’s why we’re asking for your support to grow media literacy among children.
