MIA in Journal of Media Literacy

Members of the MIA team have a published article in the Journal of Media literacy – Praxis and Partnerships – 2nd International Media Literacy Research Symposium

Abstract: In this environment of concerns about information disorders, preoccupations about critical knowledge about media and news literacy are in the front page. In this article we consider the relevance of teaching teachers (until 12th grade) in the specific context of a research project, Media In Action, on different issues of media literacy, news literacy and digital storytelling. We specifically address the relevance of journalism as a learning tool, the need for lifelong learning approaches and the use of critical literacies.

“Edited by Belinha De Abreu and Vitor Tomé, this issue brings together researchers from 25 countries and four continents who all traveled to Lisbon, Portugal in April [2018] to share and discuss their current research. Articles represent three different strands from the conference: Media Literacy, Civic Participation/Participatory Culture, and Digital Citizenship.”
