Educación y Alfabetización Mediáticas

Empowerment of people through information and media literacy is an important prerequisite for fostering equitable access to information and knowledge, and building inclusive knowledge societies.

Media Literacy is a 21st century approach to education. It provides a framework to access, analyze, evaluate, create and participate with messages in a variety of forms — from print to video to the Internet. Media literacy builds an understanding of the role of media in society as well as essential skills of inquiry and self-expression necessary for citizens of a democracy.

Media and Information Literacy (MIL) is a recently-developed pedagogical approach that takes into consideration the new cultures emerging from the Information Society. Read more about MIL.
