European project e-EAV ( e-Engagement Against Violence) aims to
deconstruct populist stereotypes about race, gender, disability and
sexual orientation in the media, and promote youth engagement against
hate speech through the development of skills of participation and
digital media education.
Teachers and educators play a crucial role in contributing to these
objectives by raising awareness among young people about these issues
through media education. At the same time, they need supports to be
involved in the teaching in this field.
That is why the e-EAV project develops an online learning
environment to enhance teachers' and educators' self-learning about media
literacy and discrimination.
You will find in this manual illustrated explanations about the
online interface of this learning environment.
