    Abstract

    This article argues that screen literacy learning needs to keep up with technological and cultural change if it is to consolidate young peoples' existing knowledge and skills to enable them to participate as global citizens. Screen literacy learning in Australia has so far focused on three screens - cinema, television and computer. However, literacy education needs to encompass a fourth screen, that of the mobile phone camera, as the mobile phone is part of a growing tendency for digital and visual technologies to develop from the social to the cultural sphere and from the home and local community to the global community.
