MLC’s mission is to assist K-12 educators who want to:

- Learn more about media literacy
- Integrate it into classroom instruction
- Help students read the media
- Help students become more media aware
- Locate appropriate resources

He created original material which has proven popular with educators and students.
The website continues to evolve and Baker adds new material almost daily.
