Media for Adults Education
2021 - 2023
The European project TeamUp! was a collaboration between 4 European countries (ERIM - France, FORMA.Αzione - Italy, Καρπός - Greece, 4Change - Portugal) which aimed to create a training for adults in media and information literacy. The project focused in three subjects: Hate Speech, Gender and Migration in Media.
Karpos in collaboration with the other partners have created the MIL Toolkit and the Curriculum for the trainings. You can use it with your trainees to explore issues such as hate speech, MIL and fake news/ disinformation. The Curriculum serves as a guide for you to build your training and you can use the Toolkit for examples of exercises and games you can use for the trainees to better understand MIL concepts and practice. At the end of the trainings, they will be able to produce small audiovisual productions.TRAININGS
Karpos was the leading partner in creating the curriculum for the trainings. The workshops and exercises of the trainings center around photo, video and narration. Our approach, as always, is hands-on and easy to apply. Our 33 trainees produced media products and participated in competitions around the subjects of Human Rights, Migration and Gender. The winners traveled to Lisbon in June 2023 and participated in the MIL'ATHON organized by the project. They created, in 4 international groups, 5 short movies during the MIL'ATHON that are available in our Team Up Site in the Media Outputs.
Karpos has completed 3 national trainings with educators for adults, social workers from IOM Greece and psychologists who work with vulnerable adults.
The first cycle of trainings took place from October 1st 2022 to January 31st 2023. The second cycle of trainings where the trainers implemented what they learned with their groups of adults took place from January 2023 to 31st of March 2023. One additional training was requested and was implemented on November 2023. In total Karpos trainees trained 150 adults.
