We called it the SMART revolution: it is the idea that digital and media literacy are part of a single process.
Firstly, it is easier to unravel the complex landscape of global communication. As long as one knows what it takes to develop software and create images.
Secondly, it is easier to understand the economic exploitation of new technologies (i.e. clickbaiting, social engineering, etc.). As long as one understands the business model behind it.
We do not strive for a perfect world thanks to this kind of literacy. We work for people to become more aware and capable of defending themselves.
In conclusion, if the topic fascinates you, there are many things we can do together. We can work on media experiments, educational material, debate moments.
We can share and promote resources, tools, good practices that make life easier for parents, students, elderly people.
