Second edition of the UNESCO Curriculum on Media and Information Literacy for Educators and Learners “Media and Information Literate Citizens: Think Critically, Click Wisely!” was translated into Russian by the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (UNESCO IITE).
The updated edition of the UNESCO Curriculum on Media and Information Literacy (MIL) presents a comprehensive competency framework of MIL and offers structured pedagogical suggestions to educators and learners. It features various detailed modules covering the range of competencies needed to navigate today’s communications ecosystem. This resource links media and information literacy to emerging issues, such as artificial intelligence, digital citizenship education, education for sustainable development, cultural literacy and the exponential rise in misinformation and disinformation. In addition, the UNESCO MIL Curriculum outlines transformations of media and information environment taking place during the last decade and requiring an entirely new understanding of media and information and the ways that it spreads and where it comes from.
The publication is designed to serve as the definitive global framework for teaching the key twenty-first century skills in the coming years. It also provides a solid foundation for UNESCO’s renewed focus as we work with governments, media, civil society and online platforms to bring the issue to the heart of the global education agenda.
