Simba Information NewsletterVolume 53, Number 3 February 4, 2022 Focus Feature: Trends in Media Literacy Education, Part 1 of a 2 Part Series
With this article, Education Market Advisor launches Focus Feature, a monthly in-depth article where your editors report on and analyze the implications of critical trends that directly impact your market strategy.
We’re starting off our focus feature trends series with an examination of media literacy, a field that is rapidly gaining traction and is opening up new publishing opportunities for the educational market.
This special two-part focus feature report takes a deep look at how growing awareness of the need for media literacy is impacting the plans of states and school districts as well as which publishers are carving out a niche in serving current and anticipated demand for teaching media literacy.
The field currently presents three distinct market opportunities:
- texts and materials for teaching students in secondary and higher education
- professional development materials for teacher training
- texts for faculty at graduate Schools of Education
This month we provide background on why interest in teaching media literacy is rising and what leading states are doing in response.
