Media education vectors in the CIS countries: forecast for the future

UDK 37.013.43 BBK 74.03(2)

Fedorov A. V.

Levitskaya A. A.

The authors’ comparative study of media literacy education development in the CIS countries suggests that in the foreseeable future the development of media education in the CIS countries will continue to be dominated by socio-cultural and practice-oriented models (to a greater extent, this is typical for Russia) and models related to the reliance on the theory of critical thinking development and the protective theory of media literacy education (to a greater extent, this is typical for Ukraine and Moldova, for example) and their corresponding tasks. Ukraine is likely to develop a trend of ideologization of the media education process that has emerged (starting from 2014) and attempts to make media literacy education a propaganda and counter-propaganda tool.

Most likely, a small increase in the number of dissertations on the material of preschool and specialized secondary education institutions is possible in the CIS countries. Research by scientists on trends in synthesis between media education and journalism (including media criticism) will continue.

On the whole, our forecast regarding the intensity of research on media literacy education in the CIS countries is optimistic: our content analysis of dissertation research in the CIS countries allows us to predict a further increase in the number of studies (mainly at the expense of regional research teams), one way or another related to the problems of media education, media literacy, media competence.

Keywords: media education, CIS countries, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, media literacy, media competence.
