The world of information

When we are looking for information it is often easier to use a source that we are familiar with. However, sometimes it’s worth stopping and think about planning our work with information and choosing the most effective strategy. This resource presents one of the most popular models for information search – the Big 6, which discusses strategies for information search as well as challenges, connected to it, such as the filter bubble (video).

The resource also gives ideas for  two learning activities with young people:
1) How to work with information?
2) Search engine secrets

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).
