The TMA Consortium, consisting of eight European partners and coordinated by Telecentre-Europe, is inviting organisations outside the Consortium to establish new Telecentre Multimedia Academies. It is an open and free possibility for adult education providers or other organisations dealing with media literacy programmes to establish own Academy.
The conference took place in Zagreb in the end of September. It was focused on presenting the Telecentre Multimedia Academy project to the wide rage of stakeholders and conference guests and a discussion of media and information literacy skills, with a focus on adult education curriculum as well as experience of its implementation in various European countries.
In Spain the pilot of the 3 modules of the Basic course (Photo, Video and Sound) was carried out by the Telecentre Municipal Grande Cobian of the Oviedo City Council. Training sessions with lots of practical exercices took more than 68 hours.
The trainees participating in the Telecentre Multimedia Academy project in Zemgale Region Human Resources and Competences Development Centre (ZRKAC) in Jelgava, Latvia are actively involved to finalize their digital stories. Five groups, each composed by 3 pilot participants, are in different stages of filming, audio recording and editing. Teachers are giving guidance and helping with the finesses of film making.
