Educators from Tallinn, Harjumaa and Ida-Virumaa started the year learning media literacy

For the fourth time, our project for Russian-speaking teachers and youth workers started in January 2024. The project, organised by MTÜ Tuleviku Meedia in partnership with the Estonian Public Broadcasting portal Rus.ERR, Radio 4 and ETV+, was attended by 25 Russian-speaking teachers and youth workers from Tallinn, Harju County and Ida-Viru County.
The January part if the project included lectures, master classes, discussions, communication, exchange of experience, meetings with journalists and editors, as well as a special literary and cultural part of the programme related to journalism, the history of Tallinn and the works of Sergei Dovlatov. The teachers visited the ERR TV House and News House, the editorial offices and studios of ETV+ and the Rus.ERR portal.

In February, at least one more meeting will take place. The event will be dedicated to methods, tools and ways of including MIL elements into different lessons.

Julia Rodina, media educator and founder of MTÜ Tuleviku Meedia, Tatjana Gassova, head of ERR radio and web news in Russian, Julia Bali, editor-in-chief of Radio 4, Andrei Titov, Radio 4 and ETV+ journalist and jost, Julia Tisler, journalist and editor of ETV+ and Nauka.ERR, Natalia Saal, ERR radio news journalist and well-known guide, met with the project participants and shared their experiences.

The aim of this project is to provide educators with new knowledge in the field of journalism and media, to get acquainted with journalists and the work of editorial offices, and to provide participants with useful and practical tools for teaching media literacy. The lecturers paid special attention to verifying the reliability of information, applying artificial intelligence, and working on information and psychological resilience skills when working with information.

More than 95 per cent of project participants noted that they already teach or plan to include elements of media literacy education in their lessons.

This project is carried out in cooperation with British Council in Estonia as part of the People to People Cultural Engagement Programme. Find more info about British Council’s work in Estonia at
