Media and Information Literacy in the Digital Age

Written, visual, and audio media tools pervading our information environment constantly bombard audiences with messages. We almost always interact with different kinds of content, such as news, advertising, entertainment, educational material, drama, documentary, politics, or ideological messaging. Meanwhile, sweeping changes have affected the frequency and style of interacting with media content. 
Media literacy, in general, characterises the efforts to prevent individuals and societies from being passive towards all these information transfer tools with which they interact. In addition, maximising individual and social benefits by using these tools most effectively is one of the main goals of literacy skills. This paper discusses the interaction of individuals and societies with information in the context of digital media and information literacy.
