Media literacy is our ability to:

  • Access,
  • Analyse and
  • Evaluate

images, sounds and messages we now encounter on a daily basis and which are an important part of our contemporary culture;

  • and also to communicate competently, using the available media, on a personal basis.

Media literacy applies to all media, including TV and film, radio and recorded music, print media, the Internet and other new digital communication tools. (*1)

The materials we offer you from now on will develop your skills, knowledge and understanding in a way that allows you to use different media effectively and safely.

This program is specially designed so that you can self-study wherever you are: at home, on the go, in a work environment. Take as much time as you can to work on each topic. When you’re ready – just mark ‘Complete’. Thus, you can interrupt work at any moment, and your progress will be shown on the start screen. The next time you come back, you’ll know where to start.

The materials we offer you are specially selected and coordinated with two other programs we made for training in a real environment:

  • “Model for activation of opinion leaders” (MOLA) – developed by the Bulgarian project partner, the “Health and Social Development” Foundation (HESED);
  • Digital Participation and Active Citizenship (DigiPAC) – was developed by neXus institute, Germany.
