Inclusive Media Literacy Curricula for Youth
Disinformation impacts our daily lives. It sparks polarization, it acts to confuse us and it ultimately affects our ability to make informed decisions, with direct consequences for our democratic societies. It poses an even greater threat when it weaponizes our differences to harm those most vulnerable. InMedia comes in response to these issues by creating an inclusive media literacy program that addresses the needs of youngsters from vulnerable communities and the youth workers who are involved in these communities, with the ultimate purpose of ensuring the transferability of media literacy competencies that they develop.
To sum it up, InMedia is about inclusive media literacy education. Our project sets out to bring media literacy to vulnerable young people with difficult socio-economic backgrounds from Romania, Hungary and the Republic of Moldova, in order to help them develop media literacy competencies and guide them through the cobweb cast by disinformation.
To this end, the first Intellectual Output is an integrated inclusive media and information literacy program for youth workers employing non-formal methodologies with young people with social obstacles.
It contains four modules:
Module 1: Curriculum for an Inclusive Media and Information Literacy Program
Module 2: Media Landscape and Fundamental Human Rights
Module 3: Misinformation in Traditional and New Media
Module 4: Inclusive Media: A Guide to Teaching Tolerance through Media Literacy
