Abstract:
This is a conference report of a two-day working conference held in April of 2000 with leading media education and public health researchers charged with the task of charting future directions for research in media education. The goal of the conference was to identify approaches that should be undertaken to measure the impact of media literacy interventions aimed at health threats to youth, to stimulate descriptive evidence about the growth and nature of media literacy education in the United States and around the world, and to begin to more fully appreciate the complex, interdisciplinary connections between the fields of media studies, education and public health that research about the practice of media literacy demands and inspires. Conference sponsors: Johnson & Johnson; Center for Substance Abuse Prevention; (HHS Secretary's Initiative on Youth Substance Abuse Prevention); National Cancer Institute; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; American Academy of Pediatrics; Alliance for a Media Literate America; Journalism Resources Institute.
