Youth, Engagement and Participation in Digital Culture
How can media literacy enable core competencies for value-driven, diverse and robust digital media use?

By presenting information that places media literacy at the center of what it means to be an engaged citizen, educators and policy makers will understand why media literacy must be integrated into formal and informal education systems before it’s too late
