Media Literacy CPD course with ACT, supported by the US Embassy

 Registration is closed for this event
A three-part course for secondary school teachers on media literacy- misinformation, disinformation and malinformation.

This course is designed for secondary school teachers who are looking to build their subject knowledge and pedagogy to teach media literacy through citizenship. This is part of a wider project supported by the US Embassy and involving ShoutOut UK.

Teachers will become:

-confident in using key terms and concepts to teach media literacy in citizenship

-competent in using critical thinking and other pedagogies

-skilled at using news and media topical issues to build resilience and counter negative news effects

The course is structured in 3 parts that link together:

Session 1: establishes the difference between mis, dis and mal-information and explores the impact of negative news in a democratic society

Session 2: will use real and topical issues including the covid19 pandemic and explore practical teaching approaches to building pupils' knowledge, understanding and skills

Session 3: will involve teachers using their learning from sessions 1 and 2 to develop their own lessons and resources and exploring wider implications of negative news events in different societies across the world

For teachers attending all 3 sessions, they will be required to complete self-study tasks between sessions 1 & 2.
