Education and Media Literacy in Russia: Genesis and Current Trends: Evaluation of the Level of Media Literacy of Students

Media in the USSR was introduced as a subject of study and education in the 1960s. Media education, as a major attempt at general democratic and humanistic teaching and social development, appears in the new Russia in the early 90s.

News Literacy is the new concept for Russia and the direction of education. Russia's first News Literacy course has been developed at the Faculty of Media Communications (National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow) in 2013. In 2013-2014 the course held more than a hundred undergraduate students. The curriculum includes lectures and seminars and consists of two-modules. The aim of the authors of the course was to show that News Literacy develops "critical thinking" and "critical autonomy" of the audience. To appreciate the result the implementation of the course has given, the research with the participation of more than two hundred students in two reference groups was conducted. The questions were divided into several categories: the use of media gadgets; variety of information channels/ sources; trusting different information sources. The first-year student group before the course and the second-year student group after the course differ greatly in their attitude to the core concepts of News Literacy.
