Product Description

Review

“That being the case, the authors’ primary recommendation is for media literacy to assume an increased role in school curricula worldwide. As Hoechsmann and Poyntz demonstrate, media practice is sufficiently academic and promotes critical citizenship, agency and empowerment – qualities that all teachers are sure to agree are highly laudable educational outcomes.”  (Pedagogies: An International Journal, 24 May 2012)

 

Review

“A terrific resource filled with fresh ideas linking media literacy to political economy, public pedagogy, critical citizenship, and, of course, “youth voice.” The text is expansive and deep—just what we need during these times of perpetual digital change.” -- Elisabeth Soep, Senior Producer & Research Director of Youth Radio

“A lively, wide-ranging, and educationally helpful discussion of media literacies. It provides valuable insights into key issues involved in becoming media literate citizens in the early 21st century." – Colin Lankshear, James Cook University and McGill University
