Learning, Teaching and Training Activity of MELDE Project

It is with great joy and excitement that the MELDE consortium organised the online Learning, Teaching and Training Activity for the MELDE: “Media Literacy in a Digitalised Era” project. The MELDE project is a European Erasmus+ SCHOOL project which aims to strength secondary school teachers' competences in order to support, protect and educate their students with regards to media literacy skills.

The training was organised online between the 16th-18th of November 2020 and the aim was to offer an intensive training course to teachers to get familiar with all the material produced for the implementation of the upcoming professional development programme.

The training was attended by the member of the MELDE consortium who had the role of trainers and mentors and 12 (twelve) secondary school teachers and other educators across Europe who participated as learners. The participants had the opportunity to get informed about the project, its professional development course – educational pack, the eLearning platform as well as its functionalities.

On the first day, the coordinator of the project (University of Wolverhampton) presented a brief overview of the project's purpose and aims and then the Greek partner NCSR "DEMOKRITOS" presented an introduction to the e-learning platform (http://melde.iit.demokritos.gr/).

On the second day of the training three learning modules were presented Module 1 - Digital Teaching and Learning by University of Wolverhampton, Module 2 - Communication and Collaboration by Emphasys Centre and Bennohaus and Module 3 - Digital Content Creation by ANT1.

On the third day of the training one learning module was presented Module 4: E-Safety by N.C.S.R. Demokritos and Bennohaus. At the end of the training, participants had an interesting and detailed discussion for the importance of technology and the changes it brought to education in the COVID-19 era.
