This article aims to show the importance of media education in the process of preparing children to function in the modern communication and information space of 21st century society. Today, the mass media are one of the integral elements of our everyday environment. This is evident in the example of the development of digital media, which in recent decades have become an indispensable part of the environment in which young people grow up. In this context, media education, both in technological and cultural terms, is the educational activity aimed at equipping children with media literacy. The acquired skills help children to develop a conscious attitude and critical reception of media as well as the rational use of them as tools of communication, learning and work. In the article these areas of media education have been identified and discussed, which are associated with the process of socialization of children and placing them into virtual social space. The processes of socialization and enculturation are part of educational activities, they prepare children and youths for life in the digital world and facilitate their entry into a social reality mediated by the media. These actions build resistance to the common threats of modern communication and increase the safety level in this way.
