Project Summary

We need to enforce the critical thinking and media literacy of children and students to be able to judge and overcome current threats of cyberbullying, radicalization, cybersecurity threats and fraud( COM2018).

The speed of translation will be so fast that students will learn immediately using new technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality. The ability to learn new knowledge will be more important than the knowledge itself. In such a new world, qualifications and knowledge will be applicable, but not enough. Critical thinking, media literacy and digital literacy will be drawback, not have profits, for those who do not have them.Students in our schools are the customers  of the media. On average, each wasting 1,500 hours a year in frontof television. About 98% of our students have Internet access in their homes and most use it every day.

According to the latest data ,Facebook have 1.45 billion users every day, 5 billion videos are uploaded to You Tube  every day, while 800 million are active on Instagram every day. But there is a trouble: they are lost in the media world because they don't know how to accurately distinguish and apply them. Rather, humanity must be taught how to process information stored through technology. Training should be aimed at processing data rather than data accumulation.

This trouble with low media literacy Information, Media Literacy Index low all partner countries (especiallyGreece 38%, Turkey 16%,) that has media literacy according to the index, is concerned with students from all partner countries. partner countries, too. Our project is about media literacy and its aim is to “warn” students, parents and teachers and bring them back to reality through critical thinking and proper use of media.
