Exploring representations in the digital world: a multimodal media literacy pathway towards creative participation.

The video provides an overview of the operational model developed by the University of Florence.

The creativity pilot presents an educational scenario entitled “Exploring Representations in the Digital World” that combines Media Education tools and practices with Multimodal Analysis. The learning scenario aims to create a dialogue between the two perspectives by developing critical media, intercultural and semiotic skills and knowledge that enable action in the social context.

The goal of the learning scenario is to propose a model of media literacy that can be adopted and/or adapted in schools as well as in other learning environments to stimulate active participation through processes of media creation.

The guide is divided into two main parts. The first one describes the different phases of the educational activities (Introduction/ Individual work/ Group Work/ Conclusion), while the appendices offer a vast array of teaching resources designed to enrich media literacy practices with the development of semiotic awareness of how media languages work. The second part provides ex-ante, in itinere and ex-post data collection tools to evaluate the effectiveness of the learning scenario in its different contextualizations.
