Mediactive: How to Participate in Your Digital World (in Spanish)

We’re in an age of information overload. Learn how media literacy principles can help you make sense of your digital media environment.

This free course is for Spanish-speaking adults who want to know more about digital media, misinformation and media literacy. We understand that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed online today; Mediactive can help you better understand and participate in our information environment. In addition to the self-directed online course, the Mediactive course team will offer a series of live webinars with experts in journalism and media, public health and technology. Visit the complete schedule on the Mediactive website.

Participants will learn how to:

  • spot misinformation
  • assess claims and sources
  • explain how the news media operate
  • use and create media to participate in their communities

You’ll learn how to become an active media user and how to ethically share and create media. The course features personalized learning options and interactive and reflection activities, alongside conversations with instructors and fellow participants through online and live discussions.

Mediactive was created by the News Co/Lab at ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. We work to advance media literacy through journalism, education and technology (and this project touches on all three!).
