I was recently asked to respond to a presentation on Australian children’s news media literacy at LSE. Shortly after,I participated in a roundtable on news literacy and disinformation, organised by the Department for Digital, Culture,Media & Sport (DCMS). These two occasions have made me think more deeply about news literacy as a variant ofmedia literacy, which has the potential to enable citizens to participate actively in society. The ability to evaluatemedia content like the news is central to notions of media literacy. Such an ability is sine qua non for a wellinformedcitizenry. But as we think about the importance of promoting media literacy among children and adults,different challenges arise, which require different solutions.
