    摘要

    This chapter aims to explore representations of information literacy and media literacy in Singapore's educational discourse as part of its 21st century skills framework. Currently, information literacy and media literacy co-exist in Singapore's education discourse but there is no related work attempting to clarify these two concepts in Singapore or to bridge them to propose an overarching framework. In what ways are these two terminologies identical or different in the local education context? We try to answer this question through reviewing relevant official documents. We start with a review the literature on the global scale regarding information literacy and media literacy. Then, we focus on Singapore to explore how various governmental agencies defining information literacy and media literacy. This chapter, in other words, is a result from a pilot study to understand how information literacy and media literacy is defined and understood in Singapore's education system.
