A media literacy seminar for the elderly.
The aim of the course is to cultivate a critical attitude towards today’s media. Not only to understand the structure and functioning of the media itself, but also to realise the inevitable distortion of all mediated information. Course objectives will be specific, and feature practical examples and subjective experiences of the participants. The result is a realistic picture of how the media work and achieve impact. Participants will learn about the rules of critical attitude towards information and its resources. They will be able to recognise specific manipulative language and techniques. Special attention will be given to visual content: images, advertising and films and their influence on the formation of our perception of reality.
