Rapidly changing technologies and new forms of communication demand a revision of what literacy instruction needs to look like today. There is already extensive research about literacy in a wide variety of contexts, including both in-school and out-of-school situations. However, there is limited research published around the learning that occurs in media literacy programs. This article explores what we can learn from media/literacy programs, and how these programs can inform – and help us rethink – literacy-learning in dynamic production contexts beyond media literacy classrooms.

This article can be explored conjunction with Joslyn Hunscher-Young’s video presentation in this module.
