IN-EDU focuses on developing good practice in media literacy and critical thinking education via inclusive, non-formal learning programmes which combine training and events at community level.
IN-EDU – INclusive communities through Media literacy & Critical Thinking EDUcation – is a 24-month project run by 7 European partners based in IT, BG, FR, HR and SI. It focuses on developing good practice in media literacy and critical thinking education via inclusive, non-formal learning programmes which combine training and events at community level. The main aim of the project is to reinforce media literacy and critical thinking among students. The IN-EDU engagement programme does this through interactive activities at local level that encourage action and participation from teachers, parents and families, and other stakeholders – thus increasing also their awareness, knowledge and competences on the subject. By working at local level the project intends to have an impact on the wider communities and play a part in preventing marginalization and countering inequality. For that, 10 lesson plans on MIL – Media and Information Literacy have been developed and made available on the website in BG, IT, HR, EN, FR to support teachers in addressing topics such as information disorder, privacy, online hate speech and discrimination with their students.
The IN-EDU engagement programme is composed of the three following International events:
1. Training for Trainers, aimed at equipping trainers with the necessary knowledge, competences and tools required to go on and run training sessions in media literacy and Training for teachers at country level in Italy, Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovenia;
2. Civic Hackathons, taking place in IT, BG, HR and SI, involving diverse groups of students, parents and representatives from civil society, the media and public authorities, aimed at designing community campaigns/actions on critical thinking and media literacy.
3. International Student Camp, the winners of the national hackathons will convene in Sofia, Bulgaria, for a 4-day student camp. The event includes learning activities, meetings with stakeholders and experts, visits.
