Torrent, Jordi – Journal of Media Literacy Education, 2011
Media Literacy Education has definitely come a long way. The author remembers mentioning Media Literacy at a Prix Jeunesse presentation in New York City in the early-mid 1990s-- all the participants looked at him as a weirdo and politely ignored his comment on the necessity for TV producers to include or at least reflect upon media…

As Prensky states, today's youth speak "digital" as their primary language. While his…

Daunic, Rhys – Journal of Media Literacy Education, 2011
When the author started working with teachers and students on classroom multimedia productions a little over 10 years ago, he had not yet encountered the term "media literacy", nor did he realize he had joined a long standing international movement of media literacy educators.

Fry, Katherine G. – Journal of Media Literacy Education, 2011
