Don't Buy It: Get Media Smart

[It’s a visual site with little text to quote.] —Don’t Buy It: Get Media Smart (PBS Kids)

Found via watercoolergames, where the “make a cereal box” utility was featured. I couldn’t get that to work on my computer, which is too bad, because I really wanted to make a Jerz’s Literacy Weblog cereal box, and maybe a cereal box icon for each of my classes in the fall. I don’t know why I decided to do that, but if the boxes are cool I can probably retrofit some pedagogical rationale to it. Or not. Er… what was this blog entry supposed to be about? Oh, yeah.

A well-designed site that doesn’t overwhelm with text (as I probably would if I were trying to teach the same lesson). I would appreciate more links off-site to more in depth resources, but maybe that’s stuff is somewhere on the site — I didn’t look through it in depth.
