What is Media Literacy?
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.

Thoretical Conepts of Media Literacy
Theoretical concepts for media literacy
education A variety of scholars have proposed
theoretical frameworks for media literacy. Renee
Hobbs identifies three frames for introducing
media literacy to learners authors and audiences
(AA), messages and meanings (MM), and
representation and reality (RR). In synthesizing
the literature from media literacy, information
literacy, visual literacy and new literacies, she
identifies these core ideas that form the
theoretical context for media literacy.

Theoretical aspect according to David Buckingham
David Buckingham has come up with four key
concepts that "provide a theoretical framework
which can be applied to the whole range of
contemporary media and to 'older' media as well
Production, Language, Representation, and
Audience." These concepts are defined as
follows

Theoretical aspect according to David Buckingham
  • Production
  • Media texts are consciously made. Some are made
    by individuals working alone, just for themselves
    or their family and friends, but most are
    produced and distributed by groups of people
    often for commercial profit. Economic interests
    and the generation of profit are often at stake
    in media production.

Theoretical aspect according to David Buckingham
  • Representation
  • The notion of 'representation' is one of the
    first established principles of media education.
    Media offers viewers a facilitated outlook of the
    world and a re-representation of reality. Media
    production involves selecting and combining
    incidents, making events into stories, and
    creating characters. Media representations allow
    viewers to see the world in some particular ways
    and not others. Audiences also compare media with
    their own experiences and make judgments about
    how realistic they are. Media representations can
    be seen as real in some ways but not in others
    viewers may understand that what they are seeing
    is only imaginary and yet they still know it can
    explain reality.

Theoretical aspect according to David Buckingham
  • Audience
  • Studying audiences means looking at how
    demographic audiences are targeted and measured,
    and how media are circulated and distributed
    throughout. It looks at different ways in which
    individuals use, interpret, and respond to media.
    The media increasingly have had to compete for
    people's attention and interest because research
    has shown that audiences are now much more
    sophisticated and diverse than has been suggested
    in the past decades. Debating views about
    audiences and attempting to understand and
    reflect on our own and others' use of media is
    therefore a crucial element of media education.
