Media literacy education is intended to promote awareness of media influence and create an active stance towards both consuming and creating media in addition to encouraging people to critically assess and evaluate what they watch, hear, and read.
In the digital age, it easy for anyone to create media. But with that in mind, we don’t always know who has created something, why they’ve created it, who it’s intended audience is and whether or not it is credible. Through this visit, we aim to provide practitioners in media field with the opportunity:
- to engage with the different media platforms that exist in London, UK,
- to understand their many purpose, reach and motivations,
- to learn from European Media & Information Literacy makers and their organisation;
- to gather and share best practices
