Successful First Media Literacy Forum Takes Place in Paris

The Media and Learning Association and ATiT were represented at the Media and Information Literacy Forum which took place on 27-28 May in the Parisian headquarters of UNESCO. Involving about 300 people from all over the world, this forum served to highlight just how much interest there is in the topic of media and information literacy (MIL), and perhaps more importantly, just how wide-ranging this interest is. This forum jointly organized by UNESCO and the EMEDUS project represented the final event of EMEDUS which is a European Commission supported project investigating media literacy in Europe. It made for a fitting end to this project and was very successful in bringing together such a rich diversity of speakers and stakeholders to review the work of the project and consider its recommendations.Read more about the forum.

Winner of the iPro survey draw receives his prize!

On Thursday May 22, the winner of the iPro Survey draw in Belgium, Casimir De Kimpe, received his prize - an iPad. Casimir is an editor who works at the Austrian television broadcaster. The prize was delivered by Sally Reynolds, from ATiT.
The iPro project is a project which is all about matching the needs of the interactive media and arts design business and higher and further education institutions for Media and Arts Design Studies.
iPro began in October and is in the process of analysing the answers given in the project survey in order to investigate the potential for a closer collaboration between HEIs and VET providers in 8 European countries focused on detection of possible skills and competences mismatches between education and the professional world. The partners plan to put in place a pilot mechanism to address this mismatch by designing and piloting a curriculum design framework for use in this specific sector.
