MeLitA (Media Literacy Analytics) aims to equip teachers with the digital tools and know‐how needed to teach media and information literacy in an online environment. Given the alarming rate of misinformation and fake news proliferation in the light of the medical, political and economic implications of the Covid‐19 pandemic, rapid development of engaging pedagogies and digital tools is necessary for teachers to be able to help their students in developing media and information literacy skills. This project will utilize the partners’ expertise in using debate methodology to improve existing media literacy education approaches while adapting the developed pedagogy for online use.
The main partners are:
EESTI VAITLUSSELTS (Estonia)
POLSKA DEBATUJE (Poland)
DANES JE NOV DAN (Slovenia)
The first meeting of the participating partners took place last week wehre the foundations for the project were laid out and discussed. We are looking forward to further participation on the project.
