Journal of Media Literacy Education (JMLE)

Frank Baker recently wrote to point me to The Journal of Media Literacy Education. This is one journal that ought to be on all TL’s reading lists and it is one we should bring to the attention of our partner teachers and administrators to inform both our study and our practice.

Sponsored by members of the National Assosiation of Media Literacy Education (NAMLE),   JMLE launched last year as an interdisciplinary, open access, online journal to support

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 articles in the current issue will absolutely impact and inspire my planning for September.  Take a look:
