In 2023, the USA National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) released the updated Core Principles of Media Literacy Education (MLE). These principles are a set of 10 foundational statements that describe best practices in media literacy education. They describe how learners, educators, education settings, and larger social contexts come together in meaningful ways to facilitate media literacy education.

In addition to revising the Core Principles, there has also been an update of the accompanying Implications for Practice document. This document provides guidance on what kinds of attitudes, values, teaching techniques and classroom strategies can best support each core principle.
