How do we do this in Europe? Media literacy training best practices
We are happy to share a collection of best practices, which present diversity of media literacy training courses and activities developed by our organisations. It is the first outcome of our discussions on most effective methods to help youth workers integrate media literacy in their activities.
Currently we are working on the contents of the European Media Literacy Standard. In the next phase of the project we will also prepare educational materials to support youth workers’ training and run events promoting the Standard in Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland and the UK.
The best practices focus on different audiences and they propose variety of tools: application to teach vulnerable teenagers about responsible use of social media, on-line platform that encourages young people to look deeper in their film reviews, extended courses that equip teachers, youth workers and cultural institutions professionals with skills needed to implement media literacy in their work using innovative methods. What they have in common is that they are truly inspirational, well tested and can be easily used as a project framework in other countries. So please read, share and get inspired!
