OF MEDIA AND INFORMATION LITERACY
Welcome to the home of the CUMILA.EU project.
Digital media has become integral part of everyday life. Besides the many advantages and opportunities, the digital world carries risks and threats. In the age of fake news, disinformation and algorithms, it is essential to understand the operating principles and mechanisms of the internet and media.
The goal of this project is to develop a media and information literacy training curriculum for adults and especially for parents. The curriculum will define the requisite knowledge and competences to reach digital maturity. Adults should learn how to use the digital world in a self-determined and self dependent way.
The project is co-funded by the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union and will start in Q4-2019. We will include interested parties at specific stages and to a certain extend within the project. If you are interested in participation or in the progress and outcome of this project, please feel free to get in touch with us. Either through one of the project partners or by sending us an E-Mail or subscribing to our newsletter [here]
