Part of the Organization’s underlying strategy to treat information literacy and media literacy as MIL and a combined set of competencies (knowledge, skills and attitude) necessary for citizens living in the 21st Century. According to Janis Karklins, Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information, the MIL Curriculum for Teachers is pioneering for the following reasons:

  • It is forward looking, drawing on present trends toward the convergence of radio, television, Internet, newspapers, books, digital archives and libraries into one platform – thereby, for the first time, presenting MIL in a holistic manner.
  • It is specifically designed with teachers in mind and for integration into the formal teacher education system thus ensuring a catalytic effect.
