The Journal of Media Literacy Education (JMLE) is a new online, media education initiative from the National Association for Media Literacy Education (formerly the Alliance for a Media Literate America). Rhys Daunic of The Media Spot was named to the inaugural Editorial Board.
The Journal is co-edited by media education luminaries Renee Hobbs and Amy Petersen Jensen. Here’s a bit more about it, from the Journal’s page on the NAMLE web site:
The Journal of Media Literacy Education is an online interdisciplinary journal that supports the development of research, scholarship and the pedagogy of media literacy education. The journal provides a forum for established and emerging scholars, media professionals and educational practitioners in and out of schools. As an extended conceptualization of literacy, media literacy education helps individuals of all ages develop habits of inquiry and skills of expression needed to become critical thinkers, effective communications and active citizens in a world where mass media, popular culture and digital technologies play an important role for individuals and society.
We’re pleased as punch that Rhys will be involved with this project, and it’s always gratifying to hear recognition of the work TMS has been doing “on the ground” with students, teachers, staff and parents.
We look forward to great things from the journal! If you are interested in submitting writing for the Journal, download the call for proposals from the NAMLE website, and feel free to contact Rhys to get started.
