Abstract: Media literacy is a kind of skill-based understanding according to which different types of media can be distinguished and the types of media production can be identified and differentiated. Teaching the necessary skills for communicating thoughtfully and consciously with the media and at the same time developing a critical, analytical and accurate perspective towards media messages (written, visual and audio) are the issues that are discussed in media literacy. A comparison and analysis of digital and media literacy among students of three universities in Iran, Belgium and India made it possible to investigate the issue thoroughly and comparatively and reveal the strengths and weaknesses of media and digital literacy compared to similar students in other countries so that more effective approaches of promoting media and digital literacy can be taken.
