Media Literacy in Information Culture of Elementary School Students
Kosolapova, Elena V. [about]
One of signs of the global information society is the increasing role of information which has a strong influence on children. Gigantic amounts of information from various media channels "rain down" on unprepared children. An increasing flow of information transforms the model of education, challenging teachers to develop new approaches and methodologies. The growth of information, global digitalization, dynamic development of information, communication technologies and new media have shown the need for information training and media education of every society’s member. However, this problem is particularly relevant for a younger generation. The need for developing children's media literacy, critical thinking, and critical attitude to information is urgent from starting from the younger school age.
