Think. Interpret. Create.How Media Education Promotes Critical Thinking, Democracy,Health, and Aesthetic Appreciationby Robert Kubey, Ph.D.
Media literacy education is at a watershed moment around the world. We are making the inevitable and gradual turn to changing what we do in classrooms and at home to make education more student-centered and responsive to children's and society's real-world needs.

Empowered Parents: Role Models for Taking Charge of TV Viewingby Folami Prescott-Adams, Ph.D.
Television is an amazingly powerful communication tool. Its images of culture, family, relationships, and events give us opportunities to socialize, teach, and inspire both children and adults. Empowered parents and communities are responsible for guiding the placement of television in the process of human development.

Media Literacy and Prevention: Going Beyond "Just Say No"by Lynda Bergsma, Ph.D.
Today most prevention practitioners and researchers, as well as concerned teachers and parents, recognize that many of the messages we get from the media are risk factors for numerous public health problems. From the time we wake up to the radio alarm clock to the time we fall asleep with the TV on, we live in a media culture. We cannot escape the media's influence on either our healthy or unhealthy behaviors.

Parents and Teachers: Team Teaching Media Literacyby Milton Chen, Ph.D., Sarah Armstrong, Ph.D., and Roberta Furger
When it comes to media, our children are mass consumers.
On average, each of them spends 1,500 hours a year watching television. Roughly 17 million children and teens have Internet access in their homes, and most of them use it daily for everything from researching school projects to playing online games to sending instant messages or chatting with their classmates. They go to movies and watch music videos. Headphones and CD players have become so much a part of the middle and high school students' "uniform" that backpacks are now designed to accommodate the gear.
But for all their exposure to mass media, American youth and teens spend precious little time analyzing the messages they're bombarded with every day.

Media Literacy Across the Curriculumby David M. Considine, Ph.D.
If they are to fully harness the power and potential of exciting new technologies and multimedia, our students must be offered the critical criteria and information skills necessary for them to become intelligent, competent consumers and creators of media messages.

New Media and New Media LiteracyThe horizon has become the landscape ? new media are hereby Neil Andersen
Because many 21stcentury homes are equipped with more robust technology than most schools, there is often a significant disconnect between students' thinking and classroom demands. Students emerging from home electronic environments have experienced multimedia immersion, participating on many cognitive levels and in many media languages simultaneously. The dominant design of many classroom curricula, however, is to isolate a few senses and concentrate on them in depth, while ignoring others.
