Media Literacy Education in Action brings together the field's leading scholars and advocates to present a snapshot of the theoretical and conceptual development of media literacy education-what has influenced it, current trends, and ideas about its future. Featuring a mix of perspectives, it explores the divergent ways in which media literacy is connected to educational communities and academic areas in both local and global contexts. The volume is structured around seven themes:

* Media Literacy: Past and Present

* Digital Media and Learning

* Global Perspectives

* Public Spaces

* Civic Activism

* Policy and Digital Citizenship

* Future Connections

Compelling, well-organized, and authoritative, this one-stop resource for understanding more about media literacy education across disciplines, cultures, and divides offers the fresh outlook that is needed at this point in time. Globally, as more and more states and countries call for media literacy education more explicitly in their curriculum guidelines, educators are being required to teach media literacy in both elementary and secondary education contexts.

"Across the diverse contributions [of this volume], several key themes emerge, but perhaps the most significant is to do with the changing nature of contemporary media-and particularly the impact of digital technology .... As an old-timer in the field, I know that we are unlikely ever to arrive at a point where we can all sign up to a single definition and prescription for media literacy education. This is the case in most other areas of education, and it's a healthy phenomenon: we should let the thousand flowers bloom."

David Buckingham, Loughborough University, UK, From the Foreword

"Presenting a fresh perspective on media literacy at this point in time, the overall theme of this book is that media literacy is relevant in new ways in our changing, mediated society. The list of contributors reads like a "who's who" in media literacy education."

Hans Schmidt, Pennsylvania State University, Brandywine, USA
