Abstract: Media Literacy is both a complex and widely misunderstood discipline. Indeed, media education is often dismissed by some educators as unnecessary; they believe in this age of diffuse and affordable digital technology and social networking services that young people will naturally acquire the skills necessary to safely navigate the modern media landscape simply by being participants in it. I believe this is a simplistic perspective, particularly in today’s digital age. The reality is that young people must become aware of the awesome power of the media and learn to understand what constitutes media, and any study of media literacy “...must also entail an in-depth critical understanding of how these media work, how they communicate, how they represent the world, and how they are produced and used.” (Buckingham, 2019.) In order for young people to become bona fide media literate members of society, an introduction to the essential elements of media and media literacy is urgently required.
