  4. 4. Introductions: MIL a “composite concept” MIL “provides answers to the questions that we all ask ourselves at some point. How can we access, search, critically assess, use and contribute content wisely, both online and offline? What are our rights online and offline? What are the ethical issues surrounding the access and use of information? How can we engage with media and ICTs to promote equality, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, peace, freedom of expression and access to information?” https://en.unesco.org/themes/media-and-information-literacy

  6. 6. Reflections on the EU Media Literacy Week Conference 19March2019,Brussels
  7. 7. Themes and features Policy initiatives on Media Literacy, particularly relating to misinformation, violence and hate speech e.g. • Revised EU directive on Audiovisual Media Services “In order to enable citizens to access information and to use, critically assess and create media content responsibly and safely, citizens need to possess advanced media literacy skills. Media literacy should not be limited to learning about tools and technologies, but should aim to equip citizens with the critical thinking skills required to exercise judgment, analyse complex realities and recognise the difference between opinion and fact. It is therefore necessary that both media service providers and video-sharing platforms providers, in cooperation with all relevant stakeholders, promote the development of media literacy in all sections of society, for citizens of all ages, and for all media and that progress in that regard is followed closely.” • Communication/ Report from the High-Level Expert Group Tackling online disinformation: a European approach adopted in April 2018 by the European Commission
  8. 8. Themes and features • Concerns about misinformation and citizens’ critical engagement with advertising, news and content • Concerns about manipulation, clickbait & impact of algorithms • Particular focus on impact on voters’ decisions, with EU elections in May 2019 and other national elections • Numerous practical initiatives, funded by the EU, by countries/regions, by platforms (e.g. Facebook, Google) etc. • Emphasis on value of quality, ethical journalism, and need for transparency
  9. 9. Winners of Media Literacy prize • Media mashup: most innovative ML project • HTML heroes: most educative project • Media mistakes: project with the greatest European potential
  10. 10. What wasn’t at the conference ... • Still most focus on youth, though it is shifting - but references to older people’s ML rather patronising • Information Literacy and librarians were missing in the conversation • Teachers were also not given prominence: speakers were journalists; media literacy experts; media literacy & fact-checking project leaders; representatives of media companies (e.g. Facebook, Mediengruppe RTL), regulators, government etc. • Media and Information Literacy was (I think) only mentioned by the UNESCO representative • Focus on media: not information in other aspects of people’s lives e.g. not mentioning health information, scholarly information, business information, information from government etc.
