First TMA project deliverables available

Telecentre Multimedia Academy (TMA), a project co-funded by the European Commission and implemented by Telecentre-Europe, aims at providing media literacy to adult learners.

The project now presents two major deliverables developed during its first year:

1) Firstly, there is a comparative report summarising the existing media literacy training offers for adult learners in Europe.  It also  identifies the needs of “customers” (trainees in adult education centres and education institutions). It will be useful for any organisation wishing to understand the needs of adult learners in the field of media literacy. Read here a short Summary of the report.

2) The second deliverable is the so-called Learning Pathway for adult learners, which details the framework curriculum to be developed and applied in the second year of the TMA project. Two courses will be offered for learners: a basic and an advanced course on media literacy. The basic course will help students to acquire theoretical basics of multimedia production, including digital sound, digital photography and digital video. The advanced course will familiarize students with the methods of project planning, creation and distribution of media content for teaching and learning with digital media technologies. The TMA consortium will start offering pilot training courses in 7 countries from April 2014.
