O desafio da literacia mediática

Shanthi Kalathil ( 2008 ) Scaling a Changing Curve: Traditional Media Development and the New Media – A Report to the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA).

“Through an examination of the use of ICT in independent media development, this paper seeks to shed light on the state of current practice with respect to media development and new technologies. It will also place these developments within the context of a rapidly changing global information industry, one that is evolving faster than traditional media programs have been able to adapt. Finally, it will offer several recommendations on how independent media-development programs can take advantage of, and keep abreast of, these new global trends.”

Uma das conclusões mais originais em estudos deste tipo é a ênfase colocada na “media literacy” (cf. conclusões).
