Media Literacy Education from Kindergarten to College: A Comparison of How Media Literacy Is Addressed across the Educational System
Schmidt, Hans C.
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v5 n1 p295-309 2013
This study of media literacy education at all levels of the educational system considered faculty perceptions of student media literacy competencies, the extent to which media literacy is addressed in class, and the extent to which faculty members consider media literacy education to be important. Data suggest that despite the research and policy focus on media literacy at the K-12 level, educators reported addressing media literacy competencies most frequently within higher education. Results also suggested that training and experience, not youth or digital nativity, are the factors that lead to an interest in teaching about media literacy among faculty.
