The Position and Status of the Media Culture from Teachers’ Viewpoint and Students’ Interests in a Certain Medium

Emira Bošnjaković, Lejla Mujanović


The paper presents media culture in the area of education as a dominant culture in the world whose careful study is necessary in order to understand social trends. Youth needs to be introduced to different types of mass media such as film, theatre, radio, television, print media, the Internet, and library. The main role of the media education is to enable students to use key media-related vocabulary. A media literate person will be able to recognize the true value of the media.
The choice of teaching methods, aids, and resources depends on the aim of the lesson. Media education is part of first language education, as well as art education.
Based on a case study, in this paper we tried to answer the following questions:
1. To what extent is media education present in the first language education?
2. Has the media education been neglected?
3. To what extent are students interested in media education ?
The analysis was conducted by applying heuristic method of analysis, descriptive analysis, and theoretical analysis
