Media Literacy Ireland is an independent association of members committed to the promotion of media literacy across Ireland.

Media literacy is a life-long learning journey and touches on almost every aspect of life as illustrated in the three Core Competencies and skills of the BAI’s Media Literacy Policy.

Our Core Competencies

1

Understand and critically evaluate broadcast, digital and other media content and services, in order to make informed choices and best manage media use.

2

Access and use broadcast and digital media content and services in a safe and secure manner, to maximise opportunities and minimise risks.

3

Create and participate via media, in a responsible, ethical and effective manner, in the creative, cultural and democratic aspects of society.
