Being media literate requires a person to have a sound knowledge of the different media,
including knowledge of technical basics and aesthetic forms, of the conditions and forms of media
production and distribution in society, and an awareness for the cultural and communicative,
economical, and political importance that these media have in globalised societies. Media literacy
is a capacity for sensible, considered, and responsible media use. This includes the ability to
make considered choices, to understand and interpret media codes, and to make careful use of
media during our leisure time, at school and in our professions. Active and creative design using
the media for self expression, for articulating subjects which interest us, for contact and
communication is another core area of media literacy. Finally, media education promotes media
criticism, which refers both to media development in society, as well as to our own (self-reflective)
media use and media creations.
