Media Literacy in Practice in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland

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:

  • The Nordic Observatory for Digital Media and Information Disorder – NORDIS

Introduction to the ”Digital Information Literacy Guide”

We are all confronted with a bewildering flood of information that they may not be able to filter out with the skills they have acquired in the school community and at home: claims about products by influencers, search results tailored by commercial algorithms, cleverly scripted propaganda and authorisations to track online behavior. It is therefore important to strengthen the digital information literacy of all the web users, especially young people, in order to identify how we are being influenced online. (Presentation)
