Media education curriculum in Ontario: A critical analysis.

Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

The fight to implement and teach media education in schools has been a continuous struggle since the 1940s. This thesis first explores the history of media education in respect to its definition, theory, and philosophy. It then examines the current state of media education in the Ontario education system. The underlying premise of the thesis is an argument for a media literate society and a media education that fosters critical awareness and preparation rather than protection and inoculation. In this study I apply an analytic approach from the field of media education---the Media Education Triangle---as a framework to examine the media education curriculum in Ontario. Through a close reading of the curriculum, I show how roles for teachers and students are constructed. At the same time, however, I suggest that these roles do not operate in a deterministic and consistent fashion, and that the moments of inconsistency in the curriculum may be used to extend students' critical media capacities.
