The DAISSy Reserach Group of the Hellenic Open University (HOU), presented the Creative Audiovisual Lab for the promotion of critical thinking and media literacy (CrAL) at the multiplier event titled “INSTRUCTION-Upskilling school teachers for education-work transition”.
The event was organized by the Hellenic Open University (HOU) – DAISSy Research Group, and took place on the 25th November 2021 in Patras – Greece, attracting more than 20-30 representatives of educational, cultural and policy making sectors in Greece despite the restrictive measures in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the presentation entitled “Media Literacy and Inclusive Education in the framework of the CrAL project” the results of the project, the development of the CrAL platform which is lead by the DAISSY Research Team and in general the activities aimed at the educational community and planned for 2022 were presented. The main goal of the project to enhance the digital skills, creativity, active citizenship, critical thinking and media literacy of both teachers and students via audio-visual creative writing and reading, as well as the project’s partnership, funding, structure, target groups, benefits for the educational community and all other main elements were also analysed.
The DAISSy’s Research Group event was completed with great success and the CrAL’s project presentation sparked the interest and the attention among the participants which is a good prospect before publishing a call for teachers to join the project in the next year.
