Alongside these developments, the role of media becomes increasingly important in shaping and supporting the social developments.

Media literacy education Iras developed at the beginning in the U.S and Canada and then in Europe in various forms since the first quarter of the 2d century. In the case of Turkey, media literacy as the subject of various meetings and studies has been discussed at length since the 2000's. At the beginning of2000's, media literacy course was included into elementary school curriculum as an elective course in accordance with “The Cooperation Protocol” signed by “The Radio and Television Supreme Council” (RTSC) and “The Ministry of National Education” (MNE) on media literacy course.
