Summary According to Ministry of Education data, media literacy lesson is provided for more than 1 million primary school students each year and implemented by teachers involved. Therefore, some studies have been conducted by RTUK and MEB for teacher training to equip those teachers with necessary information and skills on media literacy. These studies bear most limitations of classical in-service training: they can only reach to a limited number of teachers, they provide an accelerated training for several days, it’s hard to maintain them on a sustainable basis and above all, necessary educational materials cannot be updated. Academic studies on the subject state that it became necessary to meet educational demands of teachers in an effective and sustainable way in order to eliminate the failures of the program. Media Literacy Education Project is of vital importance and an innovative initiative in Turkey in the field of media literacy, the necessity of which is acknowledged by relevant public authorities and which contains concrete solutions. But, this initiative should be periodically evaluated and training programs should be improved and disseminated. The professional improvement and education services provided in the field of media literacy is of crucial importance for Vocational Schools of Communication which raise qualified interim workforce demanded by the industry: Media literacy education mainly deals with “reading” and “writing” in relation to media. That said, it becomes more important that the students produce media themselves. The project embarks upon this problem; seeks to improve professional standards of teachers who give media/media literacy courses and to provide their educational requirements through an online virtual environment on a sustainable basis along with the organization of professional improvement and educational resource services through modern means.

The project is planned on an 18 months basis and seeks to transfer European Centre for Media Literacy Project outcomes through partnership of same institutions.

Product information Medi@Ware incorporates traditional training with e-learning through its learning environment equipped with contemporary means and methods. These types of alternatives dont necessarily imply a total change in the "training of media literacy educators" and are of high importance for the accessibility and sustainability of information and experience: Interactive training units, databases, articles, on-line exams, units for information and experience exchange. Current trends/debates, social and professional requirements will be determinant of what is going to be integrated as new training themes and points. New languages for learning, technologies and various training points might be listed under this scope.
