Welcome to MedLit's e-learning platform!
The Media literacy e-learning platform is part of the project titled “Media literacy for refugee, asylum seeking and migrant women”, which is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. This e-learning platform is an online training tool aiming at building the media and digital literacy skills of low-skilled/low-qualified refugee, asylum seeking and migrant women.
Through this training the learners will become media and digitally competent i.e., they will be able to:
- understand media,
- search for information and be critical about what is retrieved,
- create media (messages) and
- communicate with others using a variety of digital (and non-digital) tools and applications (mobile, internet, television, radio, newspapers).
Moreover, the learners will build their ‘social and civic competences’, which have a clear link to critical thinking; as well as their ‘cultural awareness and expression’, which are underpinned by the ability to value diversity and respect the views and values of others. The training will also have a positive impact on the women’s host country language learning and will support their inclusion in the host societies.
The Media Literacy project – Overall
The project is implemented in six EU Member States that host large numbers of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, Austria, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta and the UK. Nevertheless, the availability of this training tool in English – as well as Italian, Greek, Farsi & Arabic – will facilitate the use and uptake of this tool by other organizations providing support to refugee and migrant women in other EU countries thus having an impact on a larger number of women.
