Participation in digital media is subject to normative requirements in democratic societies, which must be conveyed and acquired in educational processes. Digital systems can influence all stages of the communication process.

Against this background, the acquisition of media, communicative and digital literacy represents a fundamental ethical and educational challenge of the present.
