21 Nov Telecentre Multimedia Academy kicks off in Timisoara
During a partner meeting on 20-21 November 2012 in Timisoara (Romania) the Telecentre Multimedia Academy (TMA) project has taken its official start. Led by Telecentre-Europe AISBL, TMA is a 24-month multilateral project between 7 TE member organizations, aimed at designing, developing and piloting a learning programme on media literacy addressed to adult learners.
The importance of media literacy is underlined by the recognition that the new economies will be dominated by digital technologies, and the human ability to use these technologies for social, cultural and economic advantage. The programme will equip learners with skills related to understanding, use and production of media based on ICTs, including audio-visual and photography.
TMA will also establish reference points across Europe to offer this learning opportunity to adults on a regular basis. The project will make available a learning opportunity on media literacy for adult learners and provide a flexible, simply implementable, and modular learning pathway, easily transferrable and applicable for a range of diverse contexts and organization types.
For its implementation, the partnership received co-funding from the EU Life Long Learning Programme (Grundtvig programme – Multilateral Projects).
