Critical Uses of Media & Technology – XChange Issue

In the 21st century it is imperative that we critically explore how and why our mediated lives shape our decisions and democratic life. Traditional notions of literacy that fail to engage current realities of a media-saturated, technologically dependent, and globally connected world are no longer efficient, effective or ethical. In this issue of Center XChange, we focus on the importance of engaging new media and technology through critical media and techno literacies that aim to empower students as active participants in society.
