How do we define media and information literacy?
Media literacy and information literacy have always been linked, but the greater accessibility of content via the Internet and mobile platforms has meant that those literacies are increasingly intertwined. UNESCO considers information literacy and media literacy together as Media and Information Literacy (MIL). MIL includes Information and communication literacy and digital literacy. MIL is defined as a set of competencies that empowers citizens to access, retrieve, understand, evaluate and use, create, as well as share information and media content in all formats, using various tools, in a critical, ethical and effective way, in order to participate and engage in personal, professional and societal activities.
