Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to analyze the effects of media literacy in Serbia five years after "The Strategy for the Development of the Public Information System in the Republic of Serbia" came into force. Among other things, the "Strategy" proclaimed the introduction of new ICTs in order to contribute to better informing and education for children and youth. "Medijska koalicija" ("Media coalition") and US Agency for International Development (USAID), with the help of Serbian Ministry of Education and Science, started the project in order to encourage and support the democratization of the society via promotion of media literacy and responsible journalism in the Republic of Serbia. The target groups of the project were both teachers and secondary school students, as well as journalists. The project resulted in many seminars as well as a web-site which provide permanent support for the establishment of critical understanding of media messages using the most up-to-date learning models such as webinars and other multimedia tools.
