Media lit blog carnival, Feb. ’08 edition

Nick Pernisco of has started a media literacy blog carnival, with the first edition now posted. If you are a newcomer to the field, this is a great way to sample the possibilities that media education offers.

A “blog carnival” is an online roundup of blog posts from different authors relating to a common theme. See Wikipedia for a more thorough explanation of blog carnival.

This month’s theme is a general introduction to the world of media literacy with an eclectic mix of posts ranging from media education in practice to a critique of mainstream media to a funny satire about media figure Maureen Dowd. Two ThinkTime posts are featured. Yea!

Next month’s theme is about using technology in the classroom. If you have a relevant article to share, submit your entry to the media literacy blog carnival.



Think on this:

"What if we just ignored the status of students in other countries? That wouldn’t be especially neighborly, but at least we wouldn’t be viewing the gains of children in other lands as a troubling development."

Alfie Kohn

"When I hear people say it's our job to create the 21st century workforce, it scares the hell out of me. Our job is to create 21st-century citizens. We need workers, yes, but we also need scholars, activists, parents -- compassionate, engaged people."

Chris Lehmann
