In an era of digital transformation, trust in traditional media and knowledge sources has diminished, allowing misinformation and polarization to flourish. Quality education becomes an important defense against these challenges.
Watching Videos Like a Historian unites European history and media professionals to create a toolkit to help students enhance their ability to critically assess audiovisual content and develop media literacy and critical thinking skills. This project works to develop a toolkit for educators, supporting critical thinking and digital competencies. It also creates a guide for cultural heritage practitioners on unlocking the potential of audiovisual resources for educational use. Teacher training workshops further this mission, making students more informed consumers and producers of information.
