    1. "Digital technologies represent a relatively recent addition to this 'media saturated' environment and, as we shall see, they are far from equally available to all young people." (p. 75)"The 'digital divide' is no longer simply a matter of access to equipment: it is also to do with the quality of the equipment (and of internet connections), and with the skills and 'cultural capital' that are required to use it." (p. 84)


    2. An English author, he writes with good literature. This is a book that touches upon many aspects of Media Education. Good analysis and comprehensive writing. Recommend reading as a foundation book.
