Media Literacy Research Starter
"Media shapes individually lived experiences, cultures, and societies. Cultural and corporate norms, values, ideologies, and practices are mediated by modern day modes of storytelling from movies, videogames, television, music, and the Internet. Drawing on educational reformer John Dewey’s argument in the early twentieth century that a strong democracy relies on an educated and literate citizenry, scholars of new media position media literacy as a vital ability for a democratic citizenry and socially just world."
