Project Summary

Think 2ice: training course on media literacy in youth work is a training course under the Key Action 1 of the Erasmus Plus programme.
The false news, the manipulation of information, the mystifications have been part of every age of humanity but it is thanks to the tools of online technologies that they manage to have a very dangerous effectiveness. Because of this situation, negative phenomena such as fake news, post truth, trolls have become part of our daily lives making it difficult to discern between false information and information, often making many of us involuntary disinformation agents.
Being media literate allows us to see that this is untrue and media does, in fact, have underlying messages that affect us. By understanding those messages, we can change how it affects us. Media literacy is so important to consumers because it can help us to control our actions in response to media, and allow it to have less control over our views.

 

Aim
to raise the competences related to media literacy in youth work by training youth workers on the topics of fake news, post-truth, management of virtual identities in a fair way, the concept of entropy.

To discover and experience the most used tools by young people online and how to deal with them in order to raise awareness of young users
To transfer new competences and tools for youth workers on the topics of fake news, post-truth, troll and entropy who will act as multipliers with young people of their communities
