This presentation will describe the implementation and outcomes of a teacher education course-related media literacy project. Pre-service teachers were required to develop a social critique of a text, and develop a counter-text in the form of a digital story. The presentation describes the theoretical framework which guided the project, implementation procedures, outcomes, and reflections for future practice. The pre-service teachers indicated that they developed a keener sense of media awareness and critical practices through the project.
