This is an activity based on viewing and discussing excerpts (selected, short parts from a film) from a variety of cinema films and other audio-visual products, each time selected as AV representations of a certain common theme (i.e. scenes with people eating, scenes taking place in ports, scenes involving traveling by train, chase scenes, space war battles, etc.) aimed at the comparison of types of films and the messages they convey. As a convention, in this activity, the term ‘film’ refers to all types of AV texts in cinema, TV, YouTube, and Web texts.


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).
