about

Media and Information Literacy: An Integrated Approach for the 21st Century provides a novel rationale for the integration of media and information literacy and gives direction to contemporary media and information literacy education. The book takes a synthetic approach to these two areas, presenting critical histories of both.

The book explores the influence of political forces and educational practice on media literacy and the contemporary media environment, focusing on computing and mobile technology as a platform for existing and non-computational media. The final section considers a new rationale for the adjustment of content and activities into a combined project, building on a range of skills from contemporary media, reconsidering the mission of media literacy, and advocating that media and information literacy be expanded out of the classroom and positioned as a ‘public pedagogy'.

  • Proposes a new route direction for media and information literacy
  • Combines critical histories of media literacy and information literacy
  • Integrates an account of technological development as a key driver to educational activities while retaining core progressive intents
  • International in scope with recognition of international agencies, such as UNESCO and the UN
