During the spring 2012 semester, the students in Santa Monica College's Communications 2 (media literacy) course published the fourth issue of the Student Journal for Media Literacy Education. Under the supervision of Professor Nick Pernisco, the students wrote articles on the agreed upon theme of "Closing the Digital Divide". The students worked mostly in pairs on a selected topic within the theme, and they conducted their own research and analysis to produce their work. Although Professor Pernisco provided guidance, the students had the final say on the articles included in the Journal.
