Teachers Training on MIL – Media Education to fight bullying phenomena and foster inclusion

Media and information literacy is considered as a whole and includes a combination of competencies (knowledge, skills and attitudes). Indeed, the Council of the European Union indicated in 2018 with the “Key Competences for lifelong learning” of May 2018 literacy as the 1st competence.

In this training participants will learn how to develop and use Media Education to prevent and fight bullying, especially in school where “approximately 32 percent of students report being bullied” and the two phenomenon are often interconnected. The increasing use of social media and media tools at school and the increasing phenomena of bullying, in fact, start from very young students.

Although schools are apparently not obliged to have media literacy education in their curriculum, they are strongly advised to do so. Many schools are already working to improve the digital citizenship of their students. Meaning that students are aware of social media and use it in a responsible way.

By the end of this course, you’ll be familiar with:

Media education/MIL definitions, theories and updated trends
The process of teaching and learning about media by means of critical thinking and the importance of culture
The systematic instruction of media critical analysis and production skills through various media contents and technologies
