MILT CONFERENCE 2019: THE FUTURE OF MEDIA AND LEARNING IN PARTICIPATION

Join us in Lisbon, Portugal, on June 26-28, 2019 for the MILT conference – Media Literacy for Living Together: the future of media and learning in participation. This conference includes a Creative Game Jam (27-28 of June) co-organized with the Videogames bachelor degree at Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias.

MILT conference is the culminating event for MILT-Media Literacy for Living Together, a 12 month european pilot project, funded in 2018 by the Media Literacy for All programme of European Commission. MILT project emphasizes the key role of improving media literacy, especially among young people. A key rationale of this project is to enable participants to become agents of social change through their use of media and broader social engagement, incorporating the inclusion of minorities, marginalized groups and online interest communities as part of the general public.

Media creation, and particularly videogames and animation have been used in an active learning approach. Therefore, we invite scholars, teachers and practitioners to share their research in media literacy for all, particularly findings and to enrich the dialogue about the role of media creation in media literacy and forms of participation.

Topics include (not exclusive):

Media Literacy

Media Literacy: theory & practice
Videogames and animation for media literacy

Media as multi-sensory experiences

Design, art and media creation
