The Times They are a Changing: Media Education

  • Kai- Ming Cheng

Media is around us. Media is everywhere. As a student of policies, I would rate media as one of the most important elements, or actors, in contemporary policy-making. However, media is not only about policies, it is also about society and the environments in which our younger generations learn and grow. Seen from that angle, our knowledge about media, and the room we allow our students to understand media, are indeed too small. In this chapter, the attempt is made to delineate my understanding of the change in society, and in that context, how learning about media could take place.
