MIL Curriculum for Teachers
Teachers are the gateway to literate societies. Therefore, this model Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Curriculum for Teachers is intended as a tool that will provide educators of all backgrounds with the main competencies (knowledge, skills and attitude) on MIL. It focuses on pedagogical approaches necessary to enable teachers to integrate MIL in their classrooms.
By focusing on teachers, UNESCO hopes to capitalize on the potential multiplier effect. That is, media and information literate teachers should facilitate media and information literacy among their students and, in turn, lead to societies that are media and information literate.
The MIL Curriculum for Teachers is designed as a flexible and comprehensive framework that educators or curriculum developers may adapt to the local context of their countries.
The MIL Curriculum for Teachers is available in English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Greek, Japanese, Mongolian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Translation into other languages such as German and Swedish are underway. Please check our website for updates. If you are interested in partnering with UNESCO to translate the MIL Curriculum into your local language, please contact us.
