Media Literacy, Reuse, and Heritage in Education
The aim of the project is to gather and redistribute best practices that combine the teaching of audiovisual skills and the (re)use of material be it an award-winning film, piece of a chronicle or a self-made animation, which helps explain some of the more difficult parts of a lesson.
The partners see a need to cooperate across the Baltic and Nordic region in order to collect expert knowledge, know-how, best practices and already existing tools about/for (re)using media materials and heritage that could be used in the educational field with the core aim of bringing media and information literacy closer to school teachers and to the youth they teach. This includes creating awareness of the available tools that can be used to teach media and film literacy, connecting the practice of media experts with educators who teach media-savvy children, and collecting and spreading the knowledge and know-how of practical tools and methods that enable teaching media and film literacy in different contexts.
