It's 2032. We are looking back, ten years to be exact, on the most interesting years education has ever known. That was the time when media literacy became increasingly higher on the agenda: - Apps like TikTok and Discord were leading the way for the students of the time; - Day in and day out arguments that started via the online world were fought out physically in the classroom. Teachers didn't know how to handle this kind of situation and parents thought it was the responsibility of the school to fix it. - The corona epidemic showed that total digitalization is not desirable. We learned that human connection is essential in life. Digital as a means, not an end. In light of these developments, this session unpacks what we can learn from the pandemic in terms of media and digital literacy, featuring: - A school case study from The Netherlands on how to implement digital literacy in your class - Inspiration on what TMI have learned from the pandemic - Best practice on how to innovate your education today.
