The DIMLE Project

DIMLE is designed to provide a shared qualitative approach to the study of media literacy and to promote international media literacy scholarship. 

The Digital International Media Literacy Education Project (DIMLE)
Interpreting Media Messages

The definition of media literacy and the Keys to interpreting media messages that Art Silverblatt outlines in his book Media Literacy: Keys to Interpreting Media Messages (Praeger Publications, 1995, 2001, 2007, 2014) serve as a framework that can be used and shared cross-culturally by multiple stakeholders.

Ethnocentrism

The research that supports the main principles and theories in the print text is primarily from American media culture.

Timeliness

The fast development of media and technology gets the research, examples, studies, and statistics that appear in the print textbook quickly outdated. DIMLE addresses these problems.

Methodology

Not all of the Keys necessarily work for all media presentations. It is possible that none of the Keys work. But the methodology is intended to be expansive rather than reductive.
