An Overview of Media Education: Its Objectives and Evolution.
Polito, Ronald
Media education, evolved from film study, screen education, and visual literacy, is concerned with expanding learners' capability in nonprint communication, especially in the areas of film, still photography and television. Its objectives are to assist learners to interpret and utilize the mass media they encounter, and to foster individual development. The development of media education, traced back to 1900, indicates that it is receiving increasingly greater support and has become a vital educational concern. (SC)
