This chapter considers the critical theory, media literacy, and stresses sustained collaboration and the transnational exchange of critical thinking practices for digital literacy in global education. Media literacy represents a multidisciplinary category that integrates the knowledge of a broader spectrum of social sciences and is the subject of ICT, journalism, psychology, sociology, pedagogy, and, to a lesser extent, requires the attention of institutions and governmental policies. It is important to raise awareness about media manipulation and spreading disinformation and consequently foster mutual understanding among various communities while targeting young and also senior population.
