Both the videos presented some interesting points about the purpose of visual literacy. Although the Toledo “Visual Literacy and Critical Thinking” video was shorter than “Martin Scorsese on the importance of Visual Literacy”, it got it’s point across in a concise manner. It really conveyed the importance of being visually literate in the world today and not taking things at face value. Regardless, I think that although it went on a bit of a tangent in some parts, Martin Scorsese’s video gave a more holistic, personal account of how visual literacy is important. He emphasizes that watching film really requires visual literacy to be able to fully appreciate the purpose. Visual literacy also allows you the skills to be able to discern and interpret images in everyday life, in a time where images are sometimes used to manipulate.
