Hello! My name is Jack. Those clever folks at EAVI, having brought me to life through the cartoon "A Journey To Media Literacy", have now created this online community. It's all about me and my adventures that make me media-wise, but what's more is that now I can hear from you, we can chat and exchange, be kept up to date with what's happening in the media literacy world, have our own debates and shape the future.
If you are not sure what media literacy means, then find out by watching the cartoon.
Every day we spend so much time in front of screens (computer and TV but also tablets, smartphones, game consoles and other gadgets), so it is important to know how to use these media well.
According to EAVI, Media Literacy is the set of competences to access, then use and understand text, images and sounds as well as create and communicate through the media. Which means that people are aware, safe and participate fully in our media rich societies.
