Abstract

Generally, it may be expected that duration of education affects the media literacy levels. However, in the case that the education exposed has no media literacy training dimension, it is clear that the contribution of the education exposed to media literacy level is restricted. In this framework, a comparative evaluation of the media literacy levels of the final-year students in the Faculty of Education and High School has been conducted. In this study, a total of 20 students’ media literacy levels, being 10 Final-Year students in the Faculty of Education, Canakkale, Turkey and 10 High School Final-Year students, have been evaluated. Aspects of the students’ level of understanding of media literacy were evaluated through a qualitative descriptive analysis of the data gathered through open-ended interviews. On the basis of the findings obtained from open-ended questions and observations conducted, the subject has been discussed together with its different dimensions.
