    Abstract

    Many investigations into improving levels of digital media literacy have focused on the technology itself and the skill level of users. Traditional media has long been a source of information for people and yet little investigation has been conducted into using traditional media such as magazines for improving digital media literacy levels in a non-intrusive way. As traditional media is still an important way to disseminate information and while Australians continue to be high consumers of print magazines, it seemed a logical progression to investigate as a starting point whether technology is discussed or visually present within the pages of some of our highest circulating magazines. The focus of this paper is on a Nintendo advertorial printed in The Australian Women’s Weekly (AWW) in November 2010. The advertorial offered insights into six Australian womens’ experiences of using a Nintendo during a demonstration day. Combining aspects of digital media literacy with potential literacy tools of magazines, this paper considers the advertorial as part of a non-intrusive educative approach to increasing digital media literacy through promotional messages.
