Film and Media for Education
(Nordplus Horizontal programme, project "FAME. TAKE 2")
On April 17 and 18, 2020 the Latvian National Library will host the second film and media literacy conference for teachers, organized by the Latvian Academy of Culture and the UNESCO Department of Media and Information Literacy of the University of Latvia in cooperation with partners from Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark and Finland. During the conference teachers from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Denmark and Finland will be given the opportunity to hear presentations from experienced practitioners and film and media experts on what is film and media literacy and what good can they both do in the classroom. In two jam-packed days, you will be able not only to listen to presentations and take part in the workshops, but also hear and draw inspiration from teachers, who are already putting their knowledge into practice in their classes since the previous seminar in October. It is a great opportunity to not only keep up with the changes in education and learn the latest teaching methods, but also to become the ambassador of film and media literacy for education at your local school, in your local city and even throughout the country.
