Overview

"This book offers a range of perspectives on children's multimodal experiences, providing a ground-breaking account of the ways in which children engage with popular, media and digital literacy practices from their earliest years. Many young children have extensive experience of film, television, print media, computer games, mobile phones and the internet from birth, yet their engagement with media texts is rarely acknowledged in the national curricula of any country." With an unmatchable team of international experts evaluating topics from text-messaging to Teletubbies, this book is a long-overdue read for educational researchers, practitioners and policy-makers.
