Media Literacy in Practice in France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium and The Netherlands

The European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) has set up national and multinational hubs in Europe to tackle disinformation and one of the core tasks of these hubs is to organise media literacy activities at national or multinational level. This interactive online seminar is part of a series of online events organised by the Media & Learning Association together with EDMO to highlight specific aspects of the media literacy work of these hubs and to identify good practice that can be shared by others engaged in media literacy. 

During this session, the focus will be on:

BENEDMO: how we increase resilience against disinformation

An analysis exploring the the overlap and potential gaps between essential competences and available resources is the starting point to build towards a media literacy repository. Mimi and Julia will share some examples of resources and training modules which are targeted at several target groups. (Presentation)
