The need for a new Educational Paradigm and a pilot study due to the Lack of knowledge in media literacy in Europe

Description:

We want to propose a pilot media literacy program in schools in order to teach people how to use media properly. We want to spread awareness about media literacy in society and give the teachers’ necessary equipment and skills to pass on the knowledge to the next generation. To combat fake news, cyberbullying and hate speech we need to develop a critical thinking and a new sense of media literacy.
