WHAT IS FAME?
In the context of 21st century skills and competencies the approach for teaching future generations is changing rapidly with media, information as well as film literacies being among the most necessary to acquire. While children get acquainted with technologies and media at an ever-younger age, the ability to analyse, evaluate as well as to create quality media content is something to be taught with the help of teachers and tutors starting already in primary school.
The Latvian Academy of Culture and the University of Latvia together with partners from Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark and Finland are inviting teachers of general education to apply for a competence development seminar FAME. TAKE 2 (Film and Media for Education) focusing on the acquisition of film and media literacy and their integration into the school curriculum.
