Media literacy has become one of the key qualifications for taking part in society. As media technology becomes more intuitive, and media and other social practices intertwine more and more, the present study uses self-determination theory and a needs-oriented approach to media literacy to better understand what makes someone media literate, as well as how media literacy influences social development. The aims of our study were, therefore, (1) to look at the social process of media literacy and its role in the overall social development of children and (2) to examine the social process of mediating media literacy.
