What does it mean to be literate in the 21st century? Media and information literacy has never been so vital as today. Children are exposed to a constant flood of information they can't process and make sense of. Today we need to help pupils to understand how media operates, and how we can interact with media and information.
It is about preparing children for this new world of information, building defenses in the minds of children, and strengthening the capacity to use communications for individual and societal benefit.
