UNESCO and partners calls for Interest in Global Forum for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy

UNESCO and partners calls for Interest in Global Forum for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy | Information literacy_Compétences informationnelles | Scoop.it

UNESCO and its partners calls on all organisations working in the field of media and information Literacy (MIL) to express interest in the Global Forum for Partnership on MIL (GFPMIL). If your organisation is an NGO, CBO, association, network, training/academic institution, media organisation, regulatory body (such as broadcasting commission), library or other information provider, public or private entity, research institution and is involved in MIL related activities (information literacy, media literacy, digital literacy, news literacy, film literacy etc.), whether online of off line, then this call is relevant to you.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 8, 2013 9:42 PM

This post begins with an amazing number..."The public Internet now houses over 630 million sites" (and that number comes from December 2012 survey). To me that number raises a question - do our learners know how to evaluate websites? Do they have the tools that allow them to determine if a site is 'fact or fiction'? 

This post explores the issue of media literacy with a twist, which is you may choose to participate in a poll, or simply review the data based on responses (and I do not know how long the poll will remain active). 

The poll has a yes or no statement: It is important to teach children how to assess online media credibility. It is followed by four questions:

* Which media source do you trush to provide credible information?

* What makes you trust an online publication the most?

* How important is the credibility in the content you share?

* What kind of content are you most likely to share.

A unique feature of this poll is that you may explore the data through a number of filters: gender, age, income, ethnicity and race.
