One of the key messages for me that came out of the Ditchley conference on media and democracy was the importance of an enhanced understanding of media literacy. This is more than just understanding how the media works, or understanding how to create some journaism yourself. It is about developing a creative and critical knowledge about how media (especially new media) plays a part in democracy and civil society.
