Media Education in Latin America Hardback
Edited by Julio-Cesar (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain) Mateus, Pablo (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain) Andrada, Maria Teresa Quiroz
Part of the Routledge Research in Media Literacy and Education series
This book offers a systematic study of media education in Latin America.
As spending on technological infrastructure in the region increases exponentially for educational purposes, and with national curriculums beginning to implement media related skills, this book makes a timely contribution to new debates surrounding the significance of media literacy as a citizen's right.
Taking both a topical and country-based approach, authors from across Latin America present a comprehensive perspective of the region and address issues such as the political and social contexts in which media education is based, the current state of educational policies with respect to media, organizations and experiences that promote media education.
