It is shown how media teaching-learning model has transformed, with the example of media libraries which has been developing modern educational media space. There is an updated assessment of the quality of information that children use not only within the school information space, but also from mass media, the Internet, etc., which makes skills for analyzing media texts a crucial condition for keeping safe the national human capital and culture and educating highly marketable specialists. There is analysis of differences in understanding the term “media literacy”, which entail further misunderstand-ing of the concept “media competence”.
