The aim of this article is to present and critically assess the Media and Computer

Literacy Project in Slovenia. The article is divided into four parts. Comparative

analysis of the teaching of media and computer in the 1990s in

Europe is presented in the first part. The media literacy project in Slovenia is

assessed in the second part, while the third part assesses the computer literacy

project in Slovenia and discusses information literacy, which refers to the

ability to access, analyze, critically review and create diverse forms of information

and communication press, TV and radio, computer and to develop

skills and practices needed in the process of participatory democracy. The

fourth part contains an analysis of the reasons why the computer literacy prevailed

within the Media and Computer Literacy Project. Computer literacy received

more support from the authorities because it broadly agreed with some

general political and economic principles valued by Slovenian society. The

author suggest that education policy-makers everywhere should carefully review

their media and-or computer literacy policies and give clear support to

information literacy.
