Journal of Media Literacy Education launched!


The new online Journal of Media Literacy Education was launched at the National Association for Media Literacy Education Conference in Detroit yesterday.

Here is a description of the journal – and I recommend it to all those who seek to engage in our media culture in meaningful ways (I am on the editorial board so I admit to being favorable to the journal!):

The Journal of Media Literacy Education is an online interdisciplinary journal that supports the development of research, scholarship and the pedagogy of media literacy education. The journal provides a forum for established and emerging scholars, media professionals and educational practitioners in and out of schools. As an extended conceptualization of literacy, media literacy education helps individuals of all ages develop habits of inquiry and skills of expression needed to become critical thinkers, effective communicators and active citizens in a world where mass media, popular culture and digital technologies play an important role for individuals and society. The Journal of Media Literacy Education is sponsored by the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE). Visit NAMLE at
