Education in the Context of IT Reality

The technological reality of the global village has expanded man's senses and led him to a new translation and revaluation of patterns of behavior, mutual communication, culture, lifestyle at the speed with which new technology improves and marks reality. In the new context of shaping knowledge, attitudes and values, education appears as a mediator of the individual and the community, desires and possibilities, freedoms and norms. Education has a role to enable those who learning to understand contemporary culture and society, to shape their own identity and resistance to media manipulation, to respond alternatively, creatively to the challenges of modern mediated and alienated society. The process of education becomes more complex because in addition to technological configurations, numerous social and institutional factors participate as bearers of power, influence and manipulation in the system of mediation. In the context of the above mentioned, media didactics and media education are constituted as synchronous sciences that interact mutually and develop concepts of critical analysis of one's own environment as well as the content of contemporary media and consumer culture, its meanings and effects. The critical perspective opens with the constitution of critical media pedagogy based on solid communication, sociological and philosophical foundations and knowledge of the ontological, epistemological and value dimensions of each media mediation and education.
