media literacy

 

mediamanual.atThe www.mediamanual.at [german] project is an interactive platform for integrative media work in schools and offers pupils, students and teachers material for practical media education. It contains basic knowledge in the form of lectures and workshops in which practical courses are offered on subjects such as film, radio, video and new media.
 
Thematically it is concerned with problematic subject areas in media education such as the question as to how common media knowledge influences value systems and ideas.
 
The mediamanual is also a forum which organises an annual media literacy award. This is intended to thematise media competence as a political, social, cultural and personal qualification and to help establish social and critically sensible use of media within the context of the organisation of everyday life.
