Media and Information Literacy (MIL) for teachers

UNESCO and many partners have developed a Media and Information Literacy Curriculum for Teachers and this is an important pioneer resource for the following two reasons:

" First, it is forward looking, drawing on present trends toward the convergence of radio, television, Internet, newspapers, books, digital archives and libraries into one platform – thereby, for the first time, presenting MIL in a holistic manner. Second, it is specifically designed with teachers in mind and for integration into the formal teacher education system, thus launching a catalytic process which should reach and build capacities of millions of young people."

Enjoy reading and don't hesitate to move into action because, you dear colleagues (present and future teachers), "build capacities of millions of young people" as it is said in this ebook.
