In several eastern European countries, misinformation is a lucrative business, reliant on advertising revenue, and pulling in cash from a variety of other sources including government subsidies, crowdfunding, tax designations, donations and sales of merchandise.
South East European Network for Professionalization of Media (SEENPM) presents three new learning resources for media and information literacy (MIL) educators and all those interested in improving their MIL knowledge and skills.
A new learning resource produced by SEENPM member organizations within ‘Media for Citizens - Citizens for Media’ project is aimed at journalists passing on knowledge and experience about and from their profession to schoolchildren within media and information literacy context.
The report by the Center for Media, Data and Society (CMDS) summarizes the key findings of five months or so of research into the business of approximately 100 Hungarian misinformation websites.
This anthology busts the 50 most common internet myths. It clears up misconceptions about the impact and reality of the internet and summarizes what we really know about the online world.
Trainers’ Manual for Media and Information Literacy is one of the publications produced within Media for Citizens – Citizens for Media, an EU funded regional project implemented by five members of SEENPM in the Western Balkans.
The fake news phenomenon hasn’t spared the Balkans. In Bosnia & Herzegovina, it fuels a lucrative industry.
As an answer to “fake news”, more visibility of quality journalism is needed, new report argues. It is the first research work into the habits of journalists in using social networks for the promotion of their work in the Western Balkans.
This resource by Jaroslav Valuch, an experienced practitioner in the field of media literacy, is meant to serve both educators and students interested in MIL. It comes out of different Transitions and SEENPM training initiatives.
