Teaching with video
Videos bring the outside world into the classroom and create a more authentic learning experience, which lets learners connect theory to practice. Videos transfer knowledge, spark questions and lead students to reflect on their own realities.
milON offers videos, games and learning activities media for teaching media and information skills. However, the core content is a series of short videos about MIL topics such as independent journalism and freedom of expression, hate speech, algorithms, and safety online.
The milON videos are mostly documentary in character and are produced by local teams in Jordan, Palestine, and Tunisia. All feature local youth and media experts.
Combine with other elements
The milON videos can be combined with playing educational games, quizzes, and practical learning activities. They are suitable for both formal and informal educational settings as:
• Starters to catch learners’ attention and interest.
• Give a deeper understanding of a topic.
• As a starting point for assignments or group work.
• As inspiration for learners to create and share their own media content.
