International Journal of Media and Information Literacy, 2017, 2(2): 61-67.
DOI: 10.13187/ijmil.2017.2.61CrossRef

We live in a world that is saturated with mass media, consumed on a daily basis. Students spend a lot of time on media and they are susceptible to the messages conveyed by the media. What can teachers do? Schools must help students develop their analytical and critical thinking skills, so that they can evaluate critically information that relates to important issues that affect the community and the implementation of media literacy education is called upon (Cheung, 2004; Considine et al., 2009). Through the questionnaire survey and also interviews of teachers, this study identifies the major reasons and problems of implementing media literacy education in English curriculum at junior secondary level. Most of the teachers perceived the flexible content of English language and the close relationship between the teaching of English four skills and media literacy education were factors favoured the implementation in the English curriculum. And the major limitations observed by the respondents are: the lack of time, heavy workload and the lack of teacher training.

Digital Competence and Family Mediation in the Perception of Online Risk to Adolescents. Analysis of the Montenegro Case Study

International Journal of Media and Information Literacy, 2017, 2(2): 68-78.
DOI: 10.13187/ijmil.2017.2.68CrossRef

For several years, international scientific and political debate has shown increasing interest in digital literacy and digital education as tools to protect minors from the risks associated with the unmonitored and unaware use of various media. At the same time, various strains in the scientific literature have more deeply analyzed the themes of the risks and opportunities associated with using the web; this has often resulted in the promotion of political, awareness-raising, or educational interventions on the local level, to contain the potentially harmful effects and augment the positive ones linked especially to the opportunities for individual growth and sociocultural inclusion that these technologies can help bring about. This paper enters into this framework to explore how whether or not digital competence is possessed can influence young people’s media use behaviour, while increasing or not increasing the risk of media exposure within a circumscribed sociocultural context. To undertake this kind of reflection, this paper focuses its attention on the Montenegro case study and analyzes some results of the 2016 Global kids on line research work, to consider the relationship between digital competence and the exposure risk level of children between 12 and 17 years of age within circumscribed sociocultural areas.

Soviet Cinema in Cinema Art Journal (1967)

International Journal of Media and Information Literacy, 2017, 2(2): 79-89.
DOI: 10.13187/ijmil.2017.2.79CrossRef

The analysis of the articles of magazine Cinema Art – 1967 identified the following key film criticism trends: - Despite the folding thaw effects, the magazine tried to keep the ideological position of the late 1950s – early 1960s; - The authors of the magazine tried to analyze the most notable works of the Soviet cinema, even criticized certain shortcomings in the films of famous and influential at that time masters of the screen; - Paying tribute to the inevitable Soviet propaganda rhetoric, the magazine could afford to publish informative theoretical and sociological discussion, and the texts of outstanding script; - However, in some cases, the magazine could (perhaps by order "from above") cause painful a critical blow to the talented work screen. In general, the Cinema Art (1967) was a kind of typical model of the Soviet humanities journals (with the entire obligatory bow to censorship) that try to stay in the position of "socialism with a human face".

Political Aspect of Media Literacy

International Journal of Media and Information Literacy, 2017, 2(2): 90-98.
DOI: 10.13187/ijmil.2017.2.90CrossRef

The author considers media literacy as an ability to find in mass media the information s/he needs, to critically analyze it, to check its credibility and authenticity, and – in case it is needed – to produce elementary media messages. Different areas where media literacy and political culture overlap are presented in this article. How important is an ability to navigate the vast information landscape within the context of fostering interest to politics and mass media credibility? How does media literacy affect political culture? How does all this influence features of political system? The author tries to find answers to these questions and analyzes results of public surveys conducted by “Public Opinion” Fund and related to the problem discussed.

Film Comprehension Strategies in Hungarian Blogs

International Journal of Media and Information Literacy, 2017, 2(2): 99-103.
DOI: 10.13187/ijmil.2017.2.99CrossRef

The starting point of the study is that blogs show peculiar culture-historical processes determined by web2 communicational medium, represented in the film comprehension strategies and language use of the authors speaking. The study examining comprehension strategies represented in the texts of blogs. Electronic environment has thoroughly altered possibilities of public address: while it was critics of journals who spoke about films, literature or theatre before Internet appeared, nowadays we are faced with imperspicuous variety of sites. Democratisation of communication has its impact on meaning formation practice of reception communities, after all on the processes of the formation of the cultural canon. It is worth dealing with the topic in media-language and art pedagogical context as on the one hand we are witnesses of the transformation of the language of film critics, on the other hand schools have to adapt pre-knowledge and the interpretation strategies of students formed by blogs.
