Title Digital media and the challenges for media education
Author Armanda Pinto da Mota Matos, Maria Isabel Festas, Ana Maria Seixas
The ongoing evolution of digital media and the possibilities of communication and access to information which they offer draw particular attention to the need to develop citizens' effective, responsible and critical behavior not only as consumers, but also as communicators and media message producers. This article presents an analysis of the challenges that digital media poses to the education of young people, highlights the importance of a wide reflection on the concept and aims of media literacy, and offers suggestions regarding possible lines of action.
