Educational Theory Volume 48, Number 1, ISSN 0013-2004


Multiple literacies are needed to meet the challenges of today's new technologies and multicultural society. Media literacy is necessary because media culture strongly influences people's world view. Education must foster various literacies to empower students and to make education relevant to society. Critical pedagogy can promote multicultural education and sensitivity to cultural differences.
