Media and Democracy. A Response to "The Need for Media Education in Democratic Education"
Mason, Lance E.
Democracy & Education, v23 n1 Article 14 2015
This response supports Stoddard's (2014) assertion that media education should be considered a crucial factor of democratic education and offers both extensions and cautions related to that end. Extensions include practical suggestions for studying the non-neutrality of technology. The author also cautions educators that if media education and democratic education are to be productively merged, a more substantive consideration of the relationship between digital technologies and dispositional factors is warranted. [For Stoddard's "The Need for Media Education in Democratic Education," see EJ1033729.]
