Abstract: This study sought to develop a conceptual framework for new media literacy, and examine Singapore youths’ new media literacy. We developed a two-way continuum framework involving ten finegrained indicators to represent the four quadrants of new media literacy: functional consuming, critical consuming, functional prosuming, and critical prosuming literacy. We developed and validated a self-report instrument. From the data obtained through this instrument, we constructed a set of norms for evaluating the profiles of Singapore students’ new media literacy profiles. Singapore school students were found to be well-equipped with new media skills and consuming media literacy, and their new media literacy was generally related to factors such as grade level, dwelling type and time spent online rather than gender.
Description: This brief was based on the project OER 32/09 VC: New Media Literacy of School Students in Singapore.
