Do you get your information from newspapers, on television, on the radio or online? Do you think everyone in your community has access to the networks they need (online or in-person) to find important information? How would you improve the quality of information available to the general public?
Fascinating questions, huh? Even more fascinating when you consider the fact that we’re living in a democracy and we (the people) need to be well informed.
The Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in a Democracy has taken up the task of posing these and other questions as part of a study that assesses how information needs are being met in communities nationwide.
The study is in its public input phase right now, and that’s where PBS Engage comes in.
PBS Engage has created an interactive page for this project and would like Americans (that means you) to share how you get (and would like to get) your information in this digital age.
So check out the project, add your input and, of course, share your thoughts with the Young Voices below.
