The mandate of the expert group is to examine the best way forward in regard to the implementation of media literacy into the school curriculum, respecting the subsidiary principle. The media literacy expert group should give visibility to media literacy and advice on working methods to ensure that no one is left behind in this process. The expert group will analyse existing research, studies and country reports, in the light of school education, and report back to the Commission for further action. The expert group will also give data on media literacy in informal learning in order to see if there is a need for particular surveys and/or studies on certain topics. The Expert group will work on a Communication on media literacy and compulsory education (based on the work of the NEW Expert Group on media literacy and formal education) forseen for mid 2012.
