Abstract:

The literature on media literacy contains a dazzling variety of definitions. This paper structures the multitude of definitions using a constructivist model of media use. The overview shows that present definitions focus mainly on people’s knowledge about media institutions, the social network surrounding the production and reception of a media message, the actual message content and the manner in which people interpret media content, while neglecting the socializing potential of the media as well as people’s awareness of the magnitude and nature of their use of the media.
