e-Media Education about Representations and Gender
The eMERGE project aims to empower teachers’ skills in media literacy in order to deconstruct with students the gender representations and stereotypes rooted in their media practices and pop cultures. Through their involvement in project activities, teachers from four European countries will co-design a methodological approach that will allow them to seek and identify students’ media practices and consumption, especially regarding gender stereotypes and roles. The ultimate objective of the project is to raise students’ awareness (attending primary and secondary schools across Europe) about gender representations in media and the effects on citizenship and living together of the class/school community including through local digital media productions.
