The Journal of Media Literacy


The Journal of Media Literacy began as Better Broadcasts News, an organizational newsletter for the American Council for Better Broadcasts in 1953. It evolved into Telemedium, The Journal of Media Literacy in the 1980’s, as the organization changed its name to the National Telemedia Council. Today, The Journal of Media Literacy brings together the thinking and experiences of the major pioneers, the current practitioners, and the future thinkers in media literacy. It is the oldest, ongoing, in-depth North American print journal in media education. For the theme of each issue, the editorial board invites an expert guest co-editor and outstanding contributors in their field. Its readership is composed largely of K-12 teachers, teacher educators, professors, community activists, and media professionals from around the world interested in growing the field of media literacy.
