Social Media Literacy for Change (sml4change) is a one year project co-funded by the European Commission's Media Literacy for All pilot project, which aims to support European school leaders and teachers, particularly those working with young people at risk of being socially marginalised, to foster social media literacy (SML) in both their school and local community, thus reaching out to citizens at large.
The added value of this project lies in its approach to how the main output, namely the Social Media Literacy for Change MOOC (massive open online course) is created. Through a co-creation process, involving a core group of school leaders and teachers from twelve EU Member States, a five-module online course will be developed aiming to provide participants with both a theoretical background to social media literacy (SML) and best practices as well as concrete examples, based on the experience of the co-creators. At the end of the MOOC, participants will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to develop, implement and assess a whole-school SML strategy in response to societal challenges.
The MOOC is scheduled to become available on the EUN Academy website and will run for 6.5 weeks, starting from late April 2019 until June.
