Item Type: Book
Additional Information: Field of Enquiry: Media Literacy Perspective: Theoretical eloboration of media literacy, with case study exemplification of different aspects in the context of different media (digital video, comicstrip, television, computer games, film). Draws on a range of research projects, included Research Council-funded work. Original contribution: the book proposes a new theoretical model of media literacy, combining theories of culture, creativity, identity and multimodality. It is the first book of its kind to exemplify progression in media literacy across the secondary age range. Significance: the book is keenly anticipated by the media education community: an offer of translation into Chinese has already been made (from the Communication University of China in Beijing); the publication has been announced at the Media Literacy Experts group of the European Commission; and a launch is planned at the inaugural conference of the new Media Educator's Association in the UK. Research basis/rigour: the theoretical model of media literacy is carried through six case studies, developing different aspects systematically (creativity, cultural function, critical interpretation, etc). In addition, the research (both theoretical and empirical) is applied, through all the case studies, to classroom practice. The book was reviewed by publishers' readers, and the draft MS informally reviewed by colleagues from different institutions.
