Resumen:
Media education has become a necessity in the world of information and communication. Part of this debate that is being considered by the teaching community focuses on two main issues: Why should we educate on the use of information and communication technologies? How should this be done and by whom? (Potter, 2010). In this paper, we will study these issues in-depth, whilst focusing on various European educational policies in addition to recommendations made by several international organizations (European Parliament Report 2008/2129 (INI). Our aim is to contribute to this debate, as far as possible, with an appropriate media pedagogy plan that promotes social and civic competencies, which will ultimately lead to acquiring the knowledge and skills needed for good citizenship. Key words: media literacy education, media and digital competence, social and civic competence, digital citizenship, citizen knowledge.
