In the School 2.0 era in Hong Kong, school students are now using laptop computers and iPads in classroom to explore and discuss media issues. Based on the innovation theory, this study investigates this new way of teaching and learning. It aims at examining the effectiveness and challenges of learning media literacy through new media technologies. Findings show that students were highly motivated by the new media and expressed great interest in the media literacy curriculum. It did not only enhance students’ media literacy but also strengthen their 4C skills (Critical thinking, creative, communication and collaboration skills). Using new information technology to teach media education is effective because the new curriculum can create “meaning” and “relevance” to the Net Generation students.
