Application and selection for founders and mentors to kickstart Media Education For All.
Founders will go through a series of modules and workshops on media and information literacy to ensure they have a comprehensive understanding and skills on the topic.
Founders will work with mentors to develop the courses for a teacher training platform called Media Education Academy.
Media Education Academy launches and teacher outreach begins to get 3,000 educators from all over Malaysia to complete the training. Membership registration for ME4A's educator association opens.
Members of Media Education For All will begin advocacy work to promote the importance of media and information literacy to as many people as possible. They will apply and integrate the media literacy knowledge, skills and tools they have learnt in everyday lessons with students.
Our logo consists of 4 multi-coloured speech bubbles, representing the many voices in the media. They also resemble the colours of Jalur Gemilang, the flag of Malaysia.
We want to inspire youth to read in between the lines, look at the bigger picture from all sides, and identify unsaid biases so they can form holistic opinions.
We hope you see the hidden 'M'.
