Media Literacy and Disinformation – Making a Difference with eTwinning

Attention all eTwinners! eTwinning’s Annual Conference is around the corner 28th-30th October

This year, 2021, eTwinning has focused on two sides of the same coin: Media literacy, on one side, and how to tackle the phenomenon of disinformation and fake news, on the other. It was made clear during 2020, the year of the corona pandemic, that the exposure of citizens to disinformation is a major challenge not only for adults but also for students. 

In 2021, we have learned a lot. We have promoted media literacy and ways to tackle disinformation via many activities: from professional development opportunities to online events and conferences, from communication campaigns and publications to featured articles on the portal.

Join us on October 28th for the peak of the year! The first day of the conference will be open to all.

Watch the live streaming at 17:00 and do not miss:

  • The welcoming address, by Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth
  • Keynote address, by Zeynep Tufekci, Professor and writer at the New York Times.

 After the dithyrambic opening of the most exciting eTwinning event of the year, the conference will continue at 18:30 with the eTwinning European Prize Award Ceremony, during which the European Prize winners will be awarded by representatives of the European Commission and the European Education and Culture Executive Agency.

Join us in this year’s conference – and discover with us the priceless value of making the difference with true information.
