❓ Are you aware of your children´s online activity? Are you confident that they know how to use the Internet in a safe way?
❗ ❗ Around 70% of the EU population access the Internet on a daily basis (Eurostat 2020). While their time spent online is dramatically increasing as a result of lockdown measures.
👪 Media Literacy for Parents (MeLi) is an Erasmus+ Project which aims to improve Media Literacy skills for parents to enable them to foster an online safe environment for their kids.
📱 MeLi for Parents aims to develop a web application and a mobile app that will bring media literacy education in their homes. A training programme on media literacy for parents has been developed along with training activities for parents and children.
💡 The training programme consists of topics such as: Family Media Management, Popular Applications, Cyber Security, Privacy and Digital Footprints, Internet Addiction, Parental Control Tools, Cyberbullying and Hate Speech, Role Models and Stereotypes, Digital Content Creation and Misinformation on Digital Media.
👉 The next steps include the translation of training material in Greek, Italian, Polish, French and Bulgarian. Following steps include the organisation of workshops for parents in each partner country and the creation of a parents’ guide which will support them to be role models for their children in media literacy.
🤝 The project is implemented by 7 organisations across the EU:
Fundacja Mapa Pasji (Poland), European Digital Learning Network (Italy), IDEC S.A. (Greece), EPA – European Parents’ Association (Belgium), E-business Academy (Bulgaria) HeartHands Solutions (Greece) and Emphasys Centre (Cyprus)
