I’ll be attending the MediaForum symposium (minus toga) “Media Literacy Education” in Cultivate on Saturday morning and giving a breakout session talk on using the Paper Round methodology in Post-Primary schools.
It looks like it will be an interesting day. It starts from 10am, and runs until 2pm-ish. Price of Entry is €30. Here’s a link to more details.
One of the centrepieces of the day will be the launch of the report commissioned by the Radharc Trust and conducted by DIT and DCU entitled “Critical Media Literacy in Ireland”. That link is to a 1.44MB pdf of the report itself.
If you’re about and that sounds like your kind of thing (and with the wealth of participants, it seems as though any possible combination of Education and Media would be catered for) pop in and say hello. I’ll be wearing my Saturday Cord Jacket.
