ReNews: an innovative european project in the field of media literacy

In recent years, the digital media environment has been deeply transformed by the new uses of the Internet and the key role social media now play in democratic debate. While these upheavals are an undeniable progress for freedom of expression and information,  they also come with many dangers, to which young people are particularly vulnerable, such as disinformation, conspiracy theories, filter bubbles and echo chambers.

 A transnational partnership

 A year ago, the ReNews project was born to address this situation: five partners joined  forces with the support of the European Union to help students take advantage of these new  means of expression and information, and to protect them against the dangers of the  Internet : Assfam-Artemis SOS Group (France), Mouvement Up SOS Group (France), The  Institute For Strategic Dialogue (United Kingdom), Civis Polonus (Poland), and Tink  (Turkey).

         

 

 Training students and strengthening MLE networks

 The implementing organizations of the ReNews project have trained 33 teachers, librarians  and documentalists who were thus capacited to lead workshops for French, Polish and  Turkish students since the start of the new school year.
 

 Nearly 500 students will acquire the skills and knowledge needed to :

 -Sharpen their critical thinking skills; Understand the media environment;        

 -Verify the reliability of the information they consult.      

-Guard against the dangers of the Internet and social networks.      

-And become perfect digital citizens!

 

Creating educational resources for all

 After a year of work, the Renews project finally created educational tools adapted to the  needs of those who, like us, wish to educate the younger generations about media and  information.

 These resources are already available to everyone, free of charge, on this website: https://www.renews- project.org/ .

You will find:

-A comprehensive educational guide; 

-A presentation medium;        

-Many exercises and tips for support young people in the production of their own media!                                                          

Sharing our results and experience

 From 1 October in Poland, 11 November in Turkey and 4 December in France, events will be held to share the lessons we have learned from the ReNews project, in order to benefit as many people as possible invested in MLE. During this events, there will be :

-Training workshops and presentation of our tools;

-Feedback from students on their ReNews experience;    

-The intervention of EMI experts;                                                                                            

And much more to come ! 

 All information on these events will soon be available on our website.
