Joint media engagement (JME) refers to spontaneous and designed experiences of people using media together. JME can happen anywhere and at any time when there are multiple people interacting together with media. Modes of JME include viewing, playing, searching, reading, contributing, and creating, with either digital or traditional media. JME can support learning by providing resources in a current activity to participants for creating meaningful connections among media representations, interests, and experiences. These resources may also be available to co-participants in future activities.
