The eTwinning Online Annual Conference invites eTwinners to share their practice and approach to this fundamental tenet of living in the digital age, teaching their students to take control and not be controlled by the digital world.
eTwinning has been promoting Media Literacy since its birth in 2005 by focusing on the integration of digital tools in the everyday life of teachers and students. Special emphasis has been given to digital citizenship, with the aim of fostering students’ awareness and responsibility in using digital tools.
The European Commission’s Media Literacy for All Preparatory Action 2020 describes “media literacy” as an umbrella expression that includes all technical, cognitive, social, civic and creative capacities that allow citizens to access the media, to have a critical understanding of them and to interact with them. “Disinformation” is understood as verifiably false or misleading information that is created, presented and disseminated for economic gain or to intentionally deceive the public, and may cause public harm.For the second consecutive year, the eTwinning Annual Conference goes fully online. ù
Watch the live streaming at 17:00 and do not miss:
