What is the Competencies Catalogue?

The „Media and information literacy competencies catalogue” was published by the Modern Poland Foundation in May 2012. It was the first initiative in Poland aimed at answering the very basic question: „what do we really mean by media literacy?”. The catalogue covers a broad spectrum of topics: from information use, through media language, ethics and law, to economical aspects of media. It is a map of information and media literacy, which allows identification of knowledge, skills and attitudes for every age group in different thematic fields.

We are working on the Catalogue 2.0

In 2014 we are planning to publish a reviewed version of the Catalogue. We invited scholars and practictioners, teachers and librarians interested in media and information literacy to take part in our open consultations. The consultations closed on 15th January 2014.

All comments will be reviewed by an expert working group, who will prepare a second edition of the catalogue, due to be published in Polish and English in 2014. The on-line version will be available for free under CC BY-SA license.
