Media and Information Literacy

UNESCO’s action to provide people with the skills and abilities for critical reception, assessment and use of information and media in their professional and personal lives.

UNESCO is to host an international Expert Group meeting at its Headquarters in Paris (Room B13.36, Bonvin Building) from 16-18 June 2008 to catalyze processes to introduce media and information literacy components into teacher training curricula worldwide.
Experts specializing in teacher training, curriculum development, media education and information literacy representing regions across the globe will gather to agree upon a framework for a model teacher-training curriculum on media and information literacy.

The curriculum aims to integrate media education and information literacy in the initial training of teachers at secondary school levels, and will be designed for application and adaptation worldwide, according to the needs of each country. The framework will assert the desired competencies of teachers in this field and will focus on raising the awareness of youths in using information and media.

The documents of the meeting, including the final report, are available here.
