The aim of this practice is to realize the semantics of sound in relation to how story progression works and how, sounds can create images, anticipation, and feelings. This activity also helps understand how in media, we structure content both in sequential order (on a timeline) and in layers (by using more than one, parallel tracks) to structure the editing. Finally, sounds, help realize not only aural but visual rhythm too, and assist in creating a film narration due to particular characteristics that distinguish them from visuals. Focus is on two of them which are of determining importance: clarity and abstraction.


European Media Literacy Standard for Youth Workers (EMELS)

The main goal of the project was to prepare a useful tool for youth workers to develop media and digital competencies, as well as to build a strong partnership between 7 organisations involved in the topic of media literacy in Europe. The project started in January 2017. The result of our work is an innovative media literacy training programme: European Media Literacy Standard for youth workers. It is complemented by educational materials and best practices developed on Media & Information Literacy Platform for Exchanging Educational Resources (MIL/PEER).
