Event description

Description

Fake News. Echo Chambers. Viral Posts. Society looks at Education to help student navigate this "brave new world". Citizenship is seen as the place to deliver Media Literacy. But Maybe History can Play a Role? The Digital Age has after all brought a lot of tools to the history educators, including easy access to billions of sources...How to choose? What to do? What to teach?

Are you an educator, or otherwise professionally interested and curious about these questions? Join us on 2 February in Hilversum at a One-Day Conference about these issues.

The event is part of the "Media and History" Erasmus+ project. Students in Europe are exposed to history in various ways: By talking with family and friends, by watching TV and movies, by listening to music, by playing games, by following public debates. All these factors influence the way students look at history. Without critical attitudes and understanding of how history is being made, students simply echo these ideas. The fact that more and more of this expose to young Europeans - being digital natives - is happening through means, is not reflected in the way history is generally being taught. In the “Media and History” project specialists in history and media education from Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, The Netherlands and United Kingdom work together to encourage history educators to use multimedia resources to help students become more media literate. Students will use digital tools to make their own presentations of the past, better realise that historical (re)presentations are not exact copies of the past, and improve their research skills (in making judgments about the reliability of information they find online).
