In this practical workshop teachers will discover ways to integrate media literacy education into their language lessons, just like in the previous sessions of It’s Media Lit! in 2020 and 2021.
This year, however, the focus will lie on social justice: we will explore how media literacy education can function as a catalyst to create more social justice in our classrooms, at schools and in our global society at large. Participants will be activated to use the skills, insights, resources and activities discovered in this workshop, in their classrooms and local communities to move towards more media literacy education and social justice.
