This paper describes development of the Media Literacy Tool (MLT), a web-based media literacy and media effects research and learning tool. Media messages have permeated our world. Humans today, in many cultures, are bombarded with communications from advertising, television, video games, etc. Many of these messages are created with specific intentions to evoke particular responses. Most of us are not equipped to critically receive these signals, and many of us fall victim to effects of media exposure. MLT is designed to address the poverty in media research and education. As a tool for supporting collaborative content research, critical observation and emotional awareness, MLT will facilitate media effects, literacy and resiliency research.
