At the dawn of the twenty-first century, education about and through the media has become a worldwide phenomenon, and is playing an increasingly important role in educational reform. The theory and practice of media education have profited greatly from recent and intensive development and application of new information and telecommunications technologies. Consequently, the importance of media and information literacy is taking on an even greater urgency. With this in mind, the contributors to this volume survey what has taken place over the last decade in different parts of the world, examine the current state of theoretical, conceptual, and research development, and consider where media education is going and where it ought to go. With two-thirds of its 22 contributions coming from outside the United States, Media Literacy around the World is a genuine international effort, with many leading media and information educators in the world taking part. The work converts the notion of globalism from a slogan into a working hypothesis. The concerns in this volume are with literacy not just in computer technology, but as a broad concern of the educational process.

"Kubey's goal is to provide a broad introduction to media education by examining the current state of theoretical, conceptual, and research development... Audiences who would benefit from this book include graduate students interested in learning how to teach media studies, secondary education instructors and administrators, and other academics who seek confirmation that media skills education is important. Media practitioners might appreciate Kubey's book as well, since the book stresses the need for a partnership between teachers and professionals."
