UNESCO Global MIL Week 2021, NexSchools Partners with UNESCO MIL Week 2021, NexSchools event page for UNESCO MIL, Media and Inforation Literacy Wekk 2021, in India South east Asi, Events and ideas for school and educators for Media and Information Literacy

UNESCO’s Global Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week 2021 will be celebrated the world over from 24 to 30 October 2021. This year marks ten years.

ster Nexschools partnered with UNESCO’s Global Media and Information Literacy Alliance recognizing this new tech complex world and is actively involved in developing awareness and foundations for young people, schools, teachers, and community to provide media literacy, new media literacy, and breakthrough work in online safety curriculum for children and teachers. The theme for the Global MIL 2021 is “Media and Information Literacy for the Public Good”.

Tools and Resources for Empowerment, Mradula Singh, Founder NexSchools UNESCO’s Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2021, as International Organizing Committee (IOC) member., Keynote speaker and expert in Cyber Safety Awareness Campaign for children in schoools, K12 educators Mradula Singh, Founder of NexSchools’s commendable effort in Media and Information Literacy, online safety and positive use of social media has got her well deserved place in the UNESCO’s Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2021 as International Organizing Committee (IOC) member.

Mradula believes, “The uncertain quality and expanding quantity of information pose large challenges for society and impact on our personal, economic, political and social lives. New kinds of competencies are required to effectively participate and succeed in information societies. Schools and higher education along with educators have a bigger role to play in shaping our future generations.”

The world today is faced with diverse, abundant information choices through community resources, special interest organizations, online media, also from individuals in unfiltered formats, raising questions about its authenticity, validity, and reliability. Various types of information have also taken many forms through multiple media, including graphical aural, video and textual, and combination of all or some.

The information available through multiple media has escalated the complexity of this environment, posing new challenges for individuals in evaluating and understanding it. To traverse and thrive in a world where misinformation and disinformation campaigns have become a part of everyday exchanges it is important to create an informed citizenry and a complementary cluster of abilities necessary to use information effectively. UNESCO’s Global Media And Information Literacy efforts in this direction are exemplary since the first MIL initiative that was started in 2011. It was long before the exponential rise in disinformation, political polarisation, increasing influence of digital platforms, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the current ecosystem of complex and sometimes contradictory messages and meanings, it is hard to conceive of the public good being advanced, if the public is disempowered in the face of opportunities and threats. Each individual needs to be equipped with media and information literacy competencies to understand the stakes and to contribute to and benefit from information and communication opportunities.

We invite everybody to come together to celebrate MIL Week 2021 in spreading best practices for "Media and Information Literacy for the Public Good", through education or edutainment in every way and every day. 

NexSchools is conducting many online sessions, conferences and events. The very unique intiaitve by NexSchools to bring the very active and vibrant Facebook group communities that comprises K12 schools heads, educators, Momprenuers and parents who will be coming together to discuss "Media and Information Literacy - Social Media Communities".
