Media and Information Literacy:
Critical-thinking, Creativity, Literacy, Intercultural, Citizenship, Knowledge and Sustainability
Many people are using social media to access information and media. This is especially so for youth who spend much time on different networks. Therefore, social media can be used to train people, in their normal social context, to be more MIL competent. Social media can also deliver compelling information to raise awareness about the importance of media and information literacy to all levels of society.
