In order to examine if use of media (Internet, radios, TVs, or video games) improves information literacy for individuals, a three-wave panel study with junior high school students was conducted at half-year intervals. The analysis of causal relationships between Internet use and the skill to practically use information indicated virtually no short-term effect. When these results were closely examined for each type of Internet tool, however, there was a long-term effect that Internet use at the first survey did improve the skill to practically use the information and its sub-skills at the third survey. These results suggested that the effect of Internet use to improve the skill to practically use information and its sub-skills would become observable after a certain, longer period of time following the Internet use. This study indicated virtually no significant effects for other types of media.
