Media Education Reviews


David Buckingham takes the pulse of media education today, insightfully surveying the field, probing the debates and controversies, assessing out motives for teaching the media but leaving us a road map for map for the future. Covering both analysis and production, including the new digital technologies, this book is a must--have for the serious media teacher.' Barry Duncan, media education consultant, Toronto 'Media Education offers a comprehension overview of the debates, the theories and the principles that have underprinned the teaching of media, and makes a clear and urgent case for how it should proceed in the future. Buckingham provides a thorough and convincing rationale for a form of media education that is both theoretically sound and practically possible.' Dr Sue Turnbell, La Trobe University 'Buckingham marshals all his considerable talent to define the field of media education in an engaging and compelling style. This inspiring book moves educational reform ahead by light years.' Kathleen Tyner, author of Literacy in a Digital World
