As the technological and commercially-mediated environments in society have increased, young children and youth are much more exposed to many forms of media today than ever before. Considering the impact of various forms of media on young children and youth, it is important for scholars and practitioners worldwide to explore what it means to be “literate” in the 21st century. Given the diverse convergence of scholarship in domains such as media literacy/education, cultural studies, media studies, educational media and instructional technology, and critical pedagogy, this issue of AEQ seeks to make theoretical and practical connections among the commercial media, popular culture, educational technology and new forms of literacy among young children and youth.
Media literacy in this issue of AEQ is defined as the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, produce and communicate through a variety of media texts and forms. On a global scale, there exist many different perspectives on how young children and youth learn from media, as well as through their experiences of interacting with it, and what role these children, their parents, teachers, and community play in participating in such learning. This issue seeks to explore both theoretical and practical insight into the process of learning and teaching as it shapes (and, in turn, is shaped by) the lives of young children and youth, both inside and outside the classroom. Therefore, this issue is interested in how media literacy is enacted pedagogically as well as technologically within various educational settings. How can young children or youth participate in and learn through media? How can teachers use media literacy to empower their students? How can fostering media literacy shape the future of education and schooling? How can educators and policy makers prepare students to engage in more democratic and ethical uses and designs of media and their associated technologies?
Who Should Submit:
This issue of AEQ invites submissions from scholars, researchers, teachers, and teacher educators at all levels and across disciplines, who have studied media literacy and the uses of specific educational media and technologies for young children and youth, and have encouraged the development of media literacy for young children and youth in their classrooms. This issue encourages submissions of a variety of high quality manuscripts which deal with important socio-political, cultural, and international perspectives in relation to media literacy.
