Media Literacy and digital citizenship in Aotearoa New Zealand (2019)
Type of ContentChapters
In this chapter, we explore the concepts of media literacy and digital citizenship in the context of 21st century Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond. Focusing on the role criticality and technology plays in the current New Zealand mindset, different interpretations of media literacy are discussed and its relevance to primary and secondary education explained. This chapter links theoretical perspectives, such as D’Olimpio’s critical perspectivism, with the reality of teaching and curriculum in contemporary New Zealand school environments, and we explore the importance of digital media literacy in enabling our young generation to become critically reflective, well informed, media and online savvy digital democratic citizens in the information age of Internet and social media.
