Lines of action
The Observatory’s functions concentrate on:
Studies, research and actions of promotion and awareness raising in the field of Media Literacy, both on social level as in countries’ international environment.
Situational and progress reports on sociological data and indicators, consistent with different official measuring tools, coming either from the European Union, our UNESCO or any other type of international organisations.
Reports, studies or analysis on population’s necessities in the field of ICT use and connections between the multimedia contents and the media.
By applying the studies and researches, conducted by MILION, it will be possible to develop such social variables, as for example:
- * Skill improvement in comprehension and critical analysis of media messages and communications.
- * Increase of the problem solving skills, in the area of media and ICT.
- * Skill progress creativity and quality production of messages in significant cultural contexts.
- * Gains in skills related to cooperation, participation in the discussion and citizen mobilization.
