About the project
The aim of the project is to enhance critical thinking and media literacy among young people between 14-19 years old, parents, and educational staff. This will contribute to provide young people with the tools they need to understand the world they live in, stimulate their critical thinking and sense of responsibility, and help them realise the power of their voice.
The project will apply and scale up the Italian good practice “Creative audio-visual writing and reading”, to five different education systems and contexts – Croatia, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, and Spain.
Fistly, partners will adapt the good practive “Creative audio-visual writing and reading” to their contexts and design the model for setting up Creative Auidovisual Labs.
Secondly, they will train educators (teachers and trainers) to implement the Creative Audiovisual Labs. This will happen through a blended course consisting of 10 modules covering technical, digital and creative skills.
Finally, trained teachers and trainers will set up Creative Audiovisual Labs and work with their students. Students will produce films on selected topics such as migration, tolerance and other topics that are interesting for them and important in todays’ society.
CrAL – Creative Audiovisual Lab for the promotion of critical thinking and media literacy brings together seven partners from six countries (Belgium, Italy, Spain, Greece, Croatia and Lithuania) with complementary expertise in research, education and training, and network cooperation.
The CrAL platform will host the online training course for teachers and trainers. It will also have a dedicated space where the audiovisual materials produced by the students will be showcased, and will support the establishment of the community of practice. The first version of the platform is expected in December 2021.
