Cultural & New Media Studies

Here are two thought provoking books addressing key concepts and curriculum issues in media education created by EDCP 481 peers, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia. I hope
 that you 
are 
inspired 
by
 the insights
 within 
each
 section
 and
 challenged
 to 
continue 
learning
 about
 media 
and
 technology.

Preface 
& 
Acknowledgements


These 
text
s represent the
 work
 of two 
groups 
of
 
teacher
 candidates 
enrolled
 in
 a Media
 Studies
 course
 at 
the
 University
 of
 British
 Columbia
 during 
the
 summers 
of
 2010 and 2011,
 designed
 and 
taught
 by 
Dr.
 Stephen
 Petrina.

 The
 students were challenged 
to
 write 
a 
Media 
Studies 
text
 that 
appeals 
to 
grades
 10‐12 
students 
and 
provides 
teachers
 with
 an 
interesting 
resource 
for
 use 
in 
the 
classroom.

 The
 individual 
sections
 can 
be
 adopted
 and 
integrated 
into 
any 
number
 of
 subjects 
or 
adopted
 as
 a
 textbook
 for
 Media
 Studies 
or 
Media
 Education
 courses 
in
 high 
school.
