Media literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create media and is more than ever needed in the era of the COVID-19 global pandemic, in which we are exposed to a large amount of misinformation.
The Net Media Lab’s Erasmus+ KA2 School project “MeLDE: Media Literacy in the Digitalised Era: Supporting teachers through a whole-school approach” aims to strengthen the profiles of Secondary School teachers through the acquisition of relevant and high quality digital skills and competences, as well as to open education and innovative practices in the digital era by offering open and free access to the tools, both for participation in the MeLDE programme and for online assessment and validation of the skills acquired.

The meeting provided a good opportunity for the consortium to discuss about the last Intellectual Output of the project, the MeLDE TOOLKIT, which gives the opportunity to other organizations to implement an upskilling training programme through the MeLDE e-PLATFORM and to assess their acquired digital skills and competencies. We also discussed about the Multiplier Events and the Pilot Testings of each partner, as well as the remaining Dissemination and Management Issues.
The project’s Consortium consists of the following partners:
