Dissemination activity targeted at young people
In the framework of the Digital Media Literacy project, members of the EPEKA Association participated in a dissemination activity aimed at young people.
In June, as part of the Digital Media Literacy project, we successfully conducted a dissemination activity targeted at young people in the local community. We presented them with the project’s findings and empowered them with additional knowledge in the field of media digital literacy. The activity proved highly beneficial for young people as it equipped them with key competencies for responsible and critical use of digital media.
Here are 10 steps to promote digital literacy among young people and provide basic information about the project:
1. Education: Organize workshops, seminars, or lectures to provide young people with basic knowledge of media digital literacy and introduce key concepts.
2. Critical thinking: Encourage young people to develop critical thinking skills when examining and evaluating information received through digital media.
3. Sources and tools: Provide them with access to quality sources and tools that support their understanding of digital media and help them differentiate between reliable and unverified information.
4. Creativity: Foster young people’s expression of creativity through digital media, such as writing blogs, creating videos, or designing graphics.
5. Exchange of experiences: Organize group activities where young people can exchange experiences and knowledge about the use of digital media.
6. Safety and privacy: Emphasize the importance of safe use of digital media and educate young people about fundamental principles of online security and privacy.
7. Active participation: Encourage young people to actively engage in creating digital content, such as blogs, podcasts, or social media.
8. Development of communication skills: Highlight the significance of clear and effective communication through digital media, including email writing, using social networks, and video conferencing.
9. Collaboration with parents and educational institutions: Involve parents and educational institutions in promoting digital literacy among young people and ensure that this topic is addressed in the school environment.
10. Keeping up with trends: Stay updated on the development of digital media and enable young people to familiarize themselves with current trends and innovations in this field.
The Digital Media Literacy project was designed to address the lack of digital media literacy among young people. The project aimed to educate and raise awareness among young people about the proper and critical use of digital media and develop their competencies for successful navigation in the digital world. As part of the project, we conducted a dissemination activity, where we presented the project’s findings to young people and enabled them to acquire additional knowledge and skills in media digital literacy. Our goal is to empower young people to independently, responsibly, and critically use digital media and prepare them for the challenges of the modern digital society. The project is funded by the Erasmus+ program.
