Current Perspectives in Media Education

It's here! Available at a book store near you and all over the INTERWEBS. I'm chapter 9 :)

I’ve really enjoyed dipping into Current Perspectives in Media Education this week (a book for which I wrote a chapter on “Emerging Pedagogies in Higher Education”). Pete Fraser and Jonathan Wardle have put together a wonderful collection which “seeks to widen the debate and offers perspectives on where media education has been and where it might be going. With chapters from leading figures in the field, including David Buckingham and Henry Jenkins, Current Perspectives in Media Education brings together a range of viewpoints from across all sectors, from primary to university and including accounts from the UK, USA, Canada and Australia.”

The chapters are as follows:
1. Introduction: Beyond a Manifesto for Media Education; Pete Fraser and Jonathan Wardle
2. Back to the Future? Old and New Agendas in Media Education; Jenny Grahame
3. Challenging Concepts: Learning in the Media Classroom; David Buckingham
4. Media Education: A Tool for Social Inclusion; Steve Connolly
5. Educating Media Educators; Kate Domaille
6. ‘These are my photos of when I was little’: Locating Media Arts in the Primary School Curriculum; Michael Duezanni and Annette Woods
7. Public Space and Media Education in the City; Stuart Poyntz
8. From New Media Literacies to New Media Expertise; Henry Jenkins
9. Emerging Pedagogies; Helen Keegan (available from the USIR repository)
10. Cultural Disneyland? The History of an Inferiority Complex; Richard Berger
11. Not ‘philosophy of media education’, but ‘media education as philosophy’: Working With ‘creativity’; Mark Readman
12. We are the Resurrection: Media Education after the Media; Julian McDougall

  1. that’s a shame – not sure what the problem is as the repository staff make the decision on access – what message did you get?

  2. Hi Helen
    I, too, followed the link, and got this message:
    “The document you are trying to download is restricted. You need to login first.”
    However, there is an option to request a copy, so I filled in the (brief) request form with my email address. I assume I’ll get a message back with a link.
