Published by UNESCO in 2011, this publication has now been identified as a valuable resource to be translated into Portuguese in order to serve as a reference for the integration of media and information literacy (MIL) in teacher education in Brazil. The Portuguese translation has been produced in cooperation with the Federal University of Triangulo Mineiro (UFTM) and will be officially launched at a UFTM seminar in Uberaba.In 2012, UFTM, which offers a Master’s Degree Education Research Programme titled “Teacher Education and Digital Culture”, identified the UNESCO Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Curriculum for Teachers as a key resource to be translated into Portuguese. UFTM financed the translation, printing and distribution of the publication, while UNESCO was in charge of proofreading, editing and design. Both institutions will disseminate the publication among partners, educators, teachers, students, networks and other stakeholders.
