To continue the City’s goal toward having well-informed Isabelenos, the City Government of Isabela de Basilan led by Mayor Sitti Djalia A. Turabin-Hataman through its City Information Office held its second episode of Usapang Babae at iba pa on February 8 via 97.5 DXNO Radyo Komunidad.
Tackled on this episode was Media and Information Literacy as discussed by Ms. Nilda Delos Reyes, Infocenter Manager of PIA Basilan. Ms. Delos Reyes as an empowered woman leader in the world of media highlighted possible risks and issues encountered within the field of communication. She said, “Without caution and care these risks can make media consumption potentially problematic. Media and information literacy allow us to question the intent of media and protect ourselves from any negative impacts of media.” She also laid down to our radio listeners the different ways on how to spot and respond to fake news.
Thank you so much Ma’am Nilda Delos Reyes for lecturing us about Media and Information Literacy and mostly for reminding us the importance and value of information especially during this time of pandemic.
Together, let’s make Isabela City not just a gender-inclusive community but also a city with a well-informed citizenry that enables and guarantees a future with a happy and dignified life for all.
