Why Is Media Literacy Important?
A thorough understanding of the role of media helps you to assess the trustworthiness of the information you encounter.
Media literacy is essential for several reasons:
The word "literacy" usually describes the ability to read and write. Reading literacy and media literacy have a lot in common. Reading starts with recognizing letters. Pretty soon, readers can identify words -- and, most importantly, understand what those words mean. Readers then become writers. With more experience, readers and writers develop strong literacy skills.
Media literacy is the ability to identify different types of media and understand the messages they're sending. There are text messages, memes, viral videos, social media, video games, advertising, and more. Media literacy, put simply, is the ability to identify different types of media and the messages they are sending. When we speak of media, it encompasses print media, such as newspapers, magazines and posters, and theatrical presentations, tweets, radio broadcasts, etc. Digital and media literacy is an expanded conceptualization of literacy to include not only reading and writing, but speaking, listening, viewing, creating, and sharing through all of the media in our lives. But all media shares one thing: Someone created it. And it was created for a reason. Understanding that reason is the basis of media literacy.
The digital age has made it easy for anyone to create media. We don't always know who created something, why they made it, and whether it's credible. This makes media literacy tricky to learn and teach.
Media literacy is an essential skill in the digital age. Specifically, it helps learners of all ages:
Media literacy includes asking specific questions and backing up your opinions with examples. Following media-literacy steps allows you to learn for yourself what a given piece of media is, why it was made, and what you want to think about it.
MEDIA LITERACY RESOURCES RELATED TO THE PANDEMIC
"Media is an important part of the ecosystem that influences (both positively and negatively) whether and how young people participate in civic life. News in print, podcasts, on television, in social media, and cultural work shared online inform youth about the world and shape their understanding of how they can contribute to it — or whether they try.

We are especially interested in how to explore mass media, popular culture and digital media with children, helping children access information, analyze media messages, create messages, reflect on our experiences with and through media, and use media and technology to make our voices heard in the world.
In 2018 the EU established the European Media Literacy Week in order to raise awareness of the importance of media literacy across the EU and to highlight different existing initiatives, in particular those at regional and national level
