Questions related to Media Literacy
Could you assist me what theories can be used as literature review about media literacy topik in the educational context..?
and do you have most related reference about communcation competence in the digital age..?
I am seeking recommendations of strategies or examples of media education interventions to support youth media literacy in area of critical comprehension of online content and skills to collaboratively investigate and address civic/public issues.
Media education should be mainly given at the secondary, tertiary and, non-formal and lifelong education in a country. Media education is not only learning about media, but also improving journalism skills, creativity, critical and analytical thinking etc. to understand the contemporary and practical scenarios in the media and society as well as to cater to the industrial needs and requirements.
So, it is important to introduce media education/ media literary/ information literacy/ communication skills subject/s in the school level and Communication and Media Studies at the university level. Therefore, I would appreciate hearing your opinion on this.
I wonder if there is a questionnaire for measuring "21st century skills" (a.o. critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, information literacy, media literacy, technology literacy, flexibility, leadership, initiative, productivity, social skills)
Alternatively: is there a questionnaire that measures several of these skills? Or is it necessary to compile such a questionnaire from instruments for the individual measured variables?
I am in the process of conducting a systematic review on the use of digital technology and ICT in teacher education in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden). The database searches have been completed, and I am now following up with expert input and manual searches. It would be of great help if you can suggest studies that might be relevant to the review.
The inclusion criteria are the following:
Publication type: Peer-reviewed journal articles (empirical & theoretical/conceptual)
Year of publication: 2010-2019
Population: Pre-service teachers, student teachers, teacher educators, teacher trainers, mentor teachers, teacher education faculty/staff
Research focus and activities: Using digital technology and ICT for teaching and learning in teacher education, learning how to use digital technologies for subject disciplinary teaching, professional development, workshops, courses, field experience/school practicum, blended learning, MOOCs, VLEs
Target level: Teacher education (pre-school, kindergarten, primary, secondary level)
Studies must have been conducted in one of the following countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden
Language: Danish, English, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish
Thank you for your assistance!
I'm looking for research literature about young children's conceptions of coding, computers, and the internet. Via searches to various databases I have found some interesting reading (see the list below), but any additional reading (especially about children's conceptions of the internet) is highly appreciated.

Dear RG community,
I'm currently working on a literature review and I'm looking for information literacy conceptual frameworks and standards. I'm looking for contribution proposed in the scientific literature in information science (or related fields) or proposed by educational institutions or information professionals institutions (e.g SCONUL, ACRL...). I'm interested in any contributions that defines/describes the nature/scope/levels of competences/skills/knowledge/etc...that should be mastered by individuals to be "information literate". I'm also interested in any contribution from other fields (e.g media literacy, digital literacy...) if they are related in some ways with questions of human-information interaction. I'd like to discover contributions from any country if an english/french version is available.
Thanks in advance for your help,
Working on the assessment of several media literacy skills in high school students, our theoretical model poses that some skills are more basic than others, and that students need to master basic skills in order to master more advanced ones. We would like to analyze data from a test assessing several skills and clarify the relationships between the skills being assessed.
Assume that S1 is a variable that measures the level of a basic skill in a sample our students, and S2 is a variable that measures the level of a more advanced skill (which according to our model requires S1 to be mastered). If our model is correct, when S1 scores are low, S2 scores are necessary low, but as S1 scores increase, S2 may or may not increase.
What kind of statistical analysis would allow us to identify such relationhips between our variables?
Are you aware of the following 21st century skills:Interaction and Engagement, Collaboration, Adaptability, Self-direction, Leadership and Responsibility,Innovation, Intellectual reasoning, Problem solving, Assessment skills,Media literacy, information communication and technology( ICT),Social and Cross-Cultural and Accountability skills?
Hi. Can you please tell me about the difference between media education and media literacy in your project?
And why you think we should move toward media literacy from media education?
I would be interested whether there is a study/research on the connection of media literacy and social competencies / assertiveness / self-esteem. As a bigger picture, would be also interesting to see a possible link between improving media literacy and crime resistance – whether media literacy programs can function as a kind of crime prevention tool. Even prognoses are welcome!
I'm trying to scope the variety of different types of literacies included in scholarly discussions. Below, I have listed the ones I have found so far. If any of You have some additional examples I could add to the list (reference would be nice) I'd delighted to hear about those.
Thanks in adavance,
Media literacy, computer literacy, critical literacy, information literacy, game literacy, social literacy, health literacy, physical literacy, emotional literacy, network analysis literacy, financial literacy, workplace literacy, functional literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy
I want to explore the correlation between knowledge, beliefs/attitudes and practices of pre-service teachers regarding media education/media literacy in my country. I hope you can advise me of any tool you may find useful. Thanks!
I'm performing a research on parents' knowledge of media usage by their children in a preschool age in Poland. I'm interested in the factors, such as level of parent's education, social status, and its influence on the variety of media and time spent with media by children at home. The crucial question is how much time do they spend with media being aware of it and do their parents know how to show them the positive and negative aspects of media. Can you recommend me some research related to my interests and literature?
There is a lot of resarch being done on technology enhanced education, e-learning, new technologies for schools or higher education. Also, alot of research in rehabilitation studies or AAC or AAL is carried out on technologies to support handicapped people/ people with disabilities. It seems that these fields are not yet connected. I find it hard to find literature on issues such as Technology Design for handicapped people, e-learning for handicapped people etc. Can you help? I am interested in exchanging ideas.
How is the information collected through "newspapers" considered in terms of authenticity in research?
In the field of media education / media literacy education, most of the research and practices are aimed at children, young people or their parents? Does anyone know of research or practical work that focuses on media education of older people, i.e. people over 60 years of age?
I have found this interesting article about this topic but I'd like to know more about it
«The World Unplugged» and «24 Hours without Media»: Media Literacy to Develop Self-Awareness Regarding Media
Since there are no topics that address Visual Literacy I thought it was overdue. So how do you define these literacies and what goals should we set at each level of development to educate students on the consumption and production of images?
How can we help develop/ instill a critical approach to visual culture where students thoughtfully question the motivations and sites of production of the imagery they encounter on a daily basis?
Looking at the recent release of National Core Arts Standards (in the US) http://www.nationalartsstandards.org/ does it do enough to address visual and media literacies? What competencies or components might you add?
Should the teaching of such literacies be restricted to the arts? What other subjects areas do you see these literacies playing an important role in?
The instruments should measure skills (e.g. writing questions, uploading files, saving documents) necessary in an e-learning environment. We do not search for a questionnaire asking what people think they can do.
The tests should measure media competency in teachers and adult students using e-learning environments.
I am interested in analysing the importance of media literacy in arab soap operas, specifically looking at the arab soap operas (including turkish dubbed in colloqial arabic) that are broadcasting in the lebanese TV screens).
