Digest of Filter’s activities during the Global Media Literacy Week

During the Global Media Literacy Week, Filter, national media literacy project, will hold a number of activities.  The goal is to unite Ukrainians around the topic of media literacy in times of war and provide tools to combat misinformation. See Filter’s activities for the Global Media Literacy Week 2022 below.

  • On October 27, for the first time, the Filter project and IREX will conduct an all-Ukrainian national media literacy test.  Each participant is guaranteed to receive a certificate, and 30 participants who give correct answers in the least amount of time will receive gifts – tablets, power banks, backpacks, hoodies and many more!

All Ukrainians are invited to participate.  Each participant will be able to check whether they know how to fight fakes and distinguish propaganda techniques.

 The platform for passing the test will be open on October 27 three times during the day: starting at 11:00, 15:00, 19:00.

 The link to the platform for passing the test will be published on Filter’s website on October 27.

  • Specially for the media literacy week, Filter has prepared a vocabulary that unifies media literacy terminology used in Ukraine and the world.  It explains basic terms of the topic, such as fact-checking, cookies, clickbait, influencers, phishing, etc.

 You can look through the dictionary here. It is available only in Ukrainian. 

  • Filter has prepared useful information leaflets on the subject of media literacy in PDF format.  They will be useful for organizing media literacy lessons in educational institutions.  Topics list includes the following:

 🔸 how to verify photos?

 🔸 can you trust Wikipedia?

 🔸 how does Russian propaganda work in cartoons?

 🔸 what are the 5 tools of propaganda?

 🔸 how to identify disinformation?

 You can look through the leaflets here.

  • On October 27 at 4:30 p.m., Filter will hold an online lecture “How to become a Jedi on the information front?”  for all students of Ukraine.  During the lecture, students will learn:

 🔸 How to create fun and educational  content on TikTok?

 🔸 What are the signs of manipulation?

 🔸 How to check the authenticity of the image? 🔸How to read statistics? 

🔸 How to identify  the authenticity of the expert?

Learn about this and other things by registering for the lecture using this link. 

  • Filter together with the Ministry of Education and Culture encourages all educators of Ukraine to conduct a lesson on media literacy in their educational institutions.  To organize classes, we recommend the following ready-to-use materials:

 1️⃣ Lesson from IREX “Media literacy during war”.

 This lesson will help practice media literacy skills and identify the risks of the information space during war. 

 2️⃣ Toolkit from the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

 It consists of a teacher’s guide and an online game for fun and interactive learning.

 3️⃣ Toolkit Fake ≠ fact from the Swedish Institute.

The toolkit consists of practical exercises for recognizing different types of fakes and propaganda.  The document package contains ready-made presentations with comments for teachers.

 If you want to develop your own lessons, we can suggest you the following topics:

  • Bloggers and journalists. Who to trust and how to check the credibility?
  • How to create quality content?
  • Russian propaganda in cartoons. What we never noticed

To help you better prepare for lessons and inspire you for discussions with students, Filter has prepared useful and easy-to-understand materials on the topic of media literacy.  Search for all the mentioned materials here.
