Welcome to the New Millenium in Media Literacy!
Welcome to the Ontario Media Literacy Homepage.
I hope you enjoy your visit to the website. Your presence here says you are interested in educating yourself or others in media literacy. Congratulations! My name is Ron DeBoer, and I am a high school media literacy teacher at Eastwood Collegiate Institute in Kitchener, Ontario., and am not connected with the Association for Media Literacy or the Jesuit Communication Project, although much of the work you'll find here is drawn from decades of work by the likes of Barry Duncan and John Pungente. I constructed this website simply to fulfill a desire: to enable Ontario teachers to bring critical thinking skills about advertising, television, music, and popular culture into their classrooms. As you go on your tour of the Ontario Media Literacy Homepage, don't be afraid to ask questions. Email me if you have questions or suggestions.
I am building and adding onto the site each week. My 'carpenters' and 'builders' are working hard after school hours to construct this site into a living, thriving center for resources and discussion about media issues.
If you feel you can contribute, I'd love to hear from you. Until then, enjoy the ONTARIO MEDIA LITERACY HOMEPAGE.
