Brief Description

Co-editor, Mihailidis, along with his team offer a leading handbook that examines the conceptual, methodological, pedagogical, and theoretical development of media literacy education and research around the world. Using the traditional frameworks such as assessment, critical analysis, and evaluation as the foundation, it builds upon new literacies emerging in connective technologies, mobile platforms, and social networks. This book is globally focused with contributors from around the world and structured into these five themes: Educational Interventions; Safeguarding/Data and Online Privacy; Engagement in Civic Life; Media, Creativity and Production; and Digital Media Literacy. The International Handbook of Media Literacy Education underlines the competencies that are necessary for engagement and participation in the digital culture.
