Media and socio-cultural communication
Media literacy education in Ireland despite being under-resourced and relatively new to the public policy arena, builds on a long tradition and a solid foundation of critical engagement, creative activity and practical implementation. From a traditional position of protectionism in Irish cultural and educational policy, media literacy has rapidly moved to embrace new opportunities for greater participation and creative endeavour. This presentation will briefly sketch the contours of this development and identify the key elements of this multi-stakeholder, multi-disciplinary field.
