After our exciting trip to Paris (see below), I travelled to Moscow to present a very similar paper at the International Conference on Media and Information Literacy in Knowledge Societies, organised by the Information for All Programme part of UNESCO. It was an intensive couple of days, in a very good way! As well as seeing some plenary talks and panel discussions, I was part of a working group to come up with indicators of Media and Information Literacy.
The theme of Media Literacy was a new one for me but it works perfectly well with Information Literacy and it’s easy to understand why the two concepts are being linked more and more.
I was lucky enough to give our presentation as a plenary talk to the entire audience and our project got a really good response from other participants. We are hoping to keep links made at both conferences going to ensure our project is truly global and to raise awareness far and wide. Photos to follow.
