The first issue of Mediactive looks at recent changes in education practices - in particular the commodifying of education and the transformation of traditional ideas and practices of knowledge creation. We need to both understand the new conditions and create a language and politics which can reassert the value of knowledge and education as public goods.

The issue includes an analysis of the nature of knowledge; discussion on New Labour and the Knowledge Economy; Cultural Studies; the commodification of education and news journalism; new thoughts on science and culture; and a rethinking of intellectual work in the digital age.
