Media Literacy Seminar
On February 22, at British International School of Armenia a “Media Literacy” discussion-seminar took place.
People every day are surrounded by media- posters, news, news, games and more. But not all media sources are reliable and safe for use. Therefore during the seminar, the current role and significance of media literacy were discussed paying special emphasis on the ways of using media by students without any risks.
The purpose of the discussion was to teach students to critically analyze media information, to learn about manipulation tricks of media and to be able to distinguish reliable sources from untrustworthy information in media. As a result of the questions raised by the students the mechanisms of influence of media messages and materials, as well as methods of their application, were also clarified.
