Through this cultural perspective students learn that audience members are as much a part of the mass communication process as are the media producers technologies and industries. This was the first and remains the only university-level program to make media literacy central to its approach and given recent national and global turmoil its emphasis on media use and democracy could not be more timely.The new edition maintains its commitment to enhancing students’ critical thinking and media literacy skills. As in recent editions chapters offer sections on smartphones tablets and social networking sites that discuss the impact of these technologies specific to the medium at hand. However Chapter 10 now titled “The Internet and Social Media” has undergone a major revision designed to focus greater attention on social media as a mass communication technology in its own right.Additionally the new 9th edition will also feature SmartBook the first and only adaptive reading experience thathighlights content based on what the individualstudentknowsand doesn’t know and provides focused help at that momentin needthrough targeted learning resources (including videos animationsand otherinteractivities).
