Today’s digital era requires certain knowledge in the field of media and digital literacy. The crisis with COVID-19 in the recent months has shown us the great importance of the ability to communicate fully online, as well as to distinguish and counteract fake news. Sofia Development Association helps to improve these competencies among students, parents and teachers by conducting an online campaign consisting of videos with different messages on the topic of media literacy.
Having already passed through 2 months of lockdown in our houses due to COVID19 emergency, we experienced a very different lifestyle that re-shaped our relationships within the family and with our friends, colleagues and relatives. One important thing that greatly affected our daily life is surely the relationship with technology and especially our online life. Were we all ready for this?
In the context of unprecedented challenges and efforts of educational and information communities throughout Europe to tackle the current COVID-19 crisis, the IN-EDU project partners met virtually on April 8th and April 10th to evaluate, regroup and advance their media and information literacy activities targeting high-school students, teachers, parents and the community at large.
