Event Details

Manifesto for Media Education Symposium

 


This symposium is part of the wider Manifesto for Media Education project which is an attempt to develop a shared understanding, some shared reasons, for media education. See http://www.manifestoformediaeducation.co.uk/

 

 

Are we seeking to develop the media producers of tomorrow, or to nurture individuals capable of holding power to account? Are we seeking to hold a looking glass up to society in order for society itself to better understand itself, or perhaps we are hoping to develop a more media literate society capable of protecting itself from evil media conglomerates?

We hope that by the end of the project we will have a better, more sustaining understanding of the purpose of what we do and that we will be able to draw on this understanding to keep us on track in the classroom and in defending and advocating our subject in the future.
