Get ready for the next online discussion on News media literacy for adults

 

The rapid technological developments and the ever-changing social conditions shape diverse communication dynamics that give rise to several challenges such as mal-/mis/dis-information, hate speech and propaganda. In this context, adult learning seems to be an important enabler in terms of supporting individuals in becoming more critical and resilient against those challenges. To this regard, news media literacy that draws from critical media literacy education can empower adults and promote the development of active democratic citizens.

We invite you to EPALE’s upcoming discussion that addresses news media literacy from general and practical perspectives in adult learning. Share your views and experiences on which issues news media literacy education should address to adult learners. The discussion will take place on Tuesday 22 June 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. CEST.

The written discussion will be introduced by a livestream with invited experts from the Elm Magazine (European Lifelong Learning Magazine) working for the Finnish Lifelong Learning Foundation, Kvs regarding the contribution of news media literacy on adults’ learning. The written discussion and the livestream will be moderated by Rute Baptista, Professional Development Manager of eTwinning at European Schoolnet.

Creative resources to facilitate local communities

Local communities' heart and soul are originated from common activities, traditions and trust. Facilitating the people's common sense and keep the common value are strongly connected to community centres, libraries, where people come together and having, doing, feeling things together. In 2020, as a result of the COVID-19, this background, the beating heart of the communities stopped working and since then, they have been struggling with difficulties to maintain the wellbeing of people on the local level.
