Title: Media Literacy and the Effect of Socialization

Abstract: In today’s world digital literacy or media literacy (that goes beyond the digital environment) is important for children, adolescents as well as adults. It comprises a diverse set of skills, knowledge and abilities that enable an individual to critically reflect media, to use media with discernment as well as in a self-determined way. Media literacy is taught at school and supported in working environments but much knowledge, skills and abilities are acquired in informal learning settings as for example in the family or in peer groups. Since babies are born into a mediatized world, they develop media literacy from their earliest days. Also, adults never stop gaining media related knowledge and skills because the development of the media environment is an ongoing process. The webinar questions how media literacy is related to the process of socialization and discusses the social factors that foster self-determined media activity.
