Media education is the dynamically developing field. Media pedagogy in Russia has essentially started to assert itself since the 1920s (when film education and education on the material of press developed rapidly). However it was only in 1986 that the term "media education" appeared in Russian publications, while in Western European countries it has been familiar since late 1960s. And if in the 1980s this direction evoked somewhat suspicious interest in Russian pedagogic community, now the term is used so often (and not always to the point), that it is alarming -- are the boundaries of this direction so diffused that it has become omnivorous and has lost its specific character?
