A Manifesto for Media Education
The project 'A Manifesto for Media Education' aims to develop a shared understanding and some shared reasons for media education. They hope that by the end of the project (which will start life as a website and then result in a book) they will have a better, more sustaining understanding of media education. To kick-start the manifesto they asked a few media educators to provide them with their view on the purpose of media education (media studies/practice/production and media literacy). On the website you will find contributions from leading researchers in this field including Professor Henry Jenkins, Professor Natalie Fenton and Professor David Gauntlett.
