UNESCO and Twitter with a Handbook on media literacy to help educators

On October 24, 2019, Twitter published a handbook on media literacy as part of their partnership in this area with UNESCO. The handbook attempts to “provide insight into how Twitter can be used by educators and social actors of all kinds to innovate for better learning outcomes”. The two organisations hope that this will contribute to the efforts in “fostering a new generation of informed, empowered, and engaged citizens”.

The resource explains the link between media and information literacy (MIL) and global citisenship education. It contains a lot of practical advice to both learners and educators, and a number of case studies, in a easy-to-use format.
