Media literacy research and policy in Europe. A review of recent, current and planned activities

Media literacy research and policy in Europe. A review of recent, current and planned activities | Learning skills and literacies | Scoop.it

A report by Sonia Livingstone, M. Bulger and R. Zaborowski, 2013:

"This is the report of an expert seminar held in Brussels on 12/9/13, organised by the Media Literacy Task Force of the COST Action, Transforming Audiences, Transforming Societies. 25 media literacy experts from academia, policy and regulatory institutions came together to identify the current state of play and future directions for media literacy research and policy in Europe. In addition to capturing the main contributions made during the seminar, the report pulls out the recent history of media literacy policy at European level and highlights new indications of interest in this domain within the EC. The report concludes with recommendations for advancing this increasingly important area of research and policy."

The 21st Century Principal: Digital and Media Literacy: How Can It Support 21st Century Learning?

The 21st Century Principal: Digital and Media Literacy: How Can It Support 21st Century Learning? | Learning skills and literacies | Scoop.it

How can teachers use digital and media to support academic achievement in all subjects and content areas? The answer to that question is essentially what Renee Hobbs tackles in her book Digital and Media Literacy: Connecting Culture and Classroom.

Hobbs begins answering the question of supporting academic achievement with digital and media by outlining the rationale for engaging these two in 21st century instruction.
