The definition of "media literacy" depends on the area and the context in which the word is used. A typical definition of the word focuses on one's "human internal side like thought, attitude and value" which is reflected by external information. The other definition stresses the ability of internalization of the information around oneself. This complexity was organized by three interface layers; instrumental ability, interactive literacy and critical literacy, and three abilities; ability of media utilization, ability of media acceptance and ability of media expression, into a crossing table. Learner's involvement to each cell of the table was assumed and the assumptions newly defined "media literacy" as a positive ability of designing interface between media and oneself.
