The publication was primarily created with a view to helping education and other professionals from the Western Balkans, including those trained within the project, prepare their first MIL training courses.

The handbook manual offers ideas that can be used in schools: in classes of mother tongue, sociology, music and visual arts, geography, computer science, and even natural sciences.

The publication also provides tips for working with adults and senior citizens.

A basic curriculum for conducting a two-day training is presented in the manual, while trainers can adjust segments they consider most important for their target group.

In a concise and interesting way the publication offers an introduction to five key areas of media and information literacy. Three activities are suggested for each of these areas, with plenty of  tips that curious coaches can use to dive deeper into the topic they consider most important.

The manual provides guidance on time and teaching materials required to cover each activity. A list of useful links is featured at the end of the publication, each link pointing to additional materials, games, tasks and other resources.

The handbook is organized to cover five areas:

  1. Visual Literacy
  2. Media and Diversity
  3. Fact-checking
  4. Online Safety
  5. How media function.
