EduMediaTest under development to support Media Education

Audiovisual media regulators and public institutions in seven countries are currently developing EduMediaTest, an interactive digital tool to evaluate and improve media education for European pupils aged 14 to 18. The first phase of EduMediaTest which is to evaluate the media skills of pupils is well underway and will provide input into the second phase, which will focus on creating interactive teaching materials to rectify any shortcomings found. EduMediaTest will be hosted on an open access website and is being designed for teachers to use to evaluate their pupils as part of their classroom activities. The project is coordinated by the Catalan Audiovisual Council (CAC) and partially funded by the European Commission’s Media Literacy for All programme. The project website will be launched early in 2021.
