Media Education



The practise of teaching students to analyse, assess, and think critically about media systems and the content they create is known as media education. It entails a thorough examination of media ownership, business motives, news coverage, bias, and representation. Examining social media platforms (such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, and others), Internet memes, mobile apps, selfies, television programming, films, news, print advertising, online advertising, viral video content, political communication, public relations, and all other forms of popular communication are just a few examples.

Media education encourages students to consider the culture’s overall impact of our media system, particularly our commercial media system. It goes beyond specific media messages to educate pupils how to recognise broad trends in media content. It also teaches students to consider how these patterns in the larger culture reflect and reinforce specific beliefs, values, social conventions, and power structures.
