Why health literacy matters to employers | Benefits Canada | Learning skills and literacies | Scoop.it
I recently attended CPBI’s Forum in Boston. A theme that emerged loud and clear from the majority of the speakers on the topic of benefits was that employers need to take a more active role in helping their employees manage the chronic conditions with which they are living and working.

While students might trudge through set texts in lessons, how can teachers inspire them to open a book when they get home? Martin Williams explores interesting initiatives developed by teachers
Eeva Kurttila-Matero's insight:

"Showing students that teachers of all subjects read books, not just the English teachers, is really important," says Jennifer Ludgate, English teacher

"The students would come in talking about what their PE or history teacher was reading, and that would spark really interesting discussions. It's especially good if they don't see people reading at home. "

Media literacy research and policy in Europe. A review of recent, current and planned activities | Learning skills and literacies | Scoop.it

A report by Sonia Livingstone, M. Bulger and R. Zaborowski, 2013:

"This is the report of an expert seminar held in Brussels on 12/9/13, organised by the Media Literacy Task Force of the COST Action, Transforming Audiences, Transforming Societies. 25 media literacy experts from academia, policy and regulatory institutions came together to identify the current state of play and future directions for media literacy research and policy in Europe. In addition to capturing the main contributions made during the seminar, the report pulls out the recent history of media literacy policy at European level and highlights new indications of interest in this domain within the EC. The report concludes with recommendations for advancing this increasingly important area of research and policy."
