Children growing up in the 21st century need to understand the full range of media available to them, both as sources of information and entertainment, and as a means of communicating and sharing ideas. Embedded in the primary curriculum, media education enables children to become more fully literate for the digital age. Grounded in best classroom practice, this book aims to help you think about the role of media in children's lives, and to teach about media effectively in your classroom. Three dimensions of media education for the 3-11 age range are highlighted : children's own cultural experiences, the development of critical awareness, and opportunities for creative expression. The chapters are written by literacy advisors, leading academics, teacher-trainers and classroom practitioners. Topics covered include: - understanding children's relationships with media and how to build on these constructively - getting to grips with "multimodality" - developing children's critical skills through watching and analysing moving image media - broadening children's experiences of different kinds of media and their media literacy - creative media activities that promote imaginative thinking and decision-making - the importance of social networking and social media and how to use these in the classroom In an increasingly digital world, media education is an essential part of good teaching, not just as a tool to teach the more traditional aspects of the curriculum, but in its own right as an essential part of literacy. This book is relevant to all teachers working in Primary schools, and will be particularly helpful for Literacy Co-ordinators.

Media education in Asia is a relatively young, but rapidly developing part of the curriculum. Research has been conducted and papers have been written on various issues concerning media education in Asia. The dominant models of media education in the world are broadly Western and most are drawn from English-speaking countries. The question is whether a similar pattern exists in Asia, where there may be differences in culture, heritage, beliefs, values, education policy, as well as curriculum and pedagogy. Are educators in Asia following the Western model in developing and implementing media education, or are they devising their own models? With this question in mind, this book sets out to understand the prevailing perspectives regarding media education in various Asian societies. While most debates about media education are carried out in Western contexts, this book hopes to provide a platform for readers to examine this issue in an Asian context.

Media Education Goes to School examines the struggles involved in integrating media education across the curriculum at a small urban school. Based on quasi-ethnographic research – specifically semi-formal individual and group interviews with twenty-one participants and participant-observation – the text focuses on how students understand and make meaning of media education in their schools, and what they know about urban education and urban school reform. The book argues against the neoliberal ethos that continuously harms urban youth and the rhetoric of new school reform that replicates, not heals, subjected social positions. Media education is a necessity in secondary schooling, but it cannot be thoroughly integrated into schools until significant structural changes are made in education: this book positions the site of change through the struggles students express with their own experience of education.

The Chinese government has long kept tight control on both traditional and new media to prevent potential challenges to its authority. But, for better or worse, China has now reached a stage where it is difficult to exercise political hegemony through laws and regulations and the control of the mass media. China has become a global superpower and in 2011 surpassed Japan as the world’s second largest economy, second only to the USA. China’s entertainment industry is also flourishing, and the market is large enough to attract foreign investors that either view China as an important market or are interested in Chinese capital. Today, more children in China watch television than in any other country in the world, and Internet usage is also increasing, making the implementation of media literacy education an important issue. This book presents the prevailing perspectives on media literacy education in China and describes how the current curriculum reform for implementing media literacy education is being developed. It will not only stimulate debate and further research, but will also influence policy decisions regarding media literacy education in China.

Education in and about the media is expanding across Europe and, like the industries it studies, is changing rapidly. The future of media education is a matter of live concern in all European countries, as educators and practitioners throughout the continent come together to learn from each other and to plan for the changes to come. Media Education Across Europe identifies the exciting developments now taking place within and across the boundaries of European nation-states. Essays from eight countries - the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Sweden and the Netherlands - explore the development of courses and approaches to the subject in each country. The contributors also consider the prospects for European collaboration in media education; the possibilities opening up for graduate employment and the future conflict - and co-operation - between media teachers and media employers.
