Welcome to another episode of the ACS Athens Owlcast. Today with us is Hercules Lianos, a graduate of our school and a member of the ACS Athens faculty whose students are continuously challenged to reflect and analyze the information flow they receive and produce. It’s all about Media Literacy.

Today we talk with Hercules Lianos, Academy Teacher of Media Literacy. Stay with us as we discuss:

  • Reflecting on today’s complicated media landscape;
  • The lack of trust in the news of young people and their resulting cynicism;
  • Discussion and debate in the classroom about the news;
  • What does it mean to be media literate today?;
  • Objectivity and purpose of reporting the news;
  • Targeting a specific news audience - the Fox News example;
  • The effect of opinion leaders on the impact of information flow.
