Our project Future Media+ Camp EXTRA activities took place on June 3 and 4, 2023 in Tallinn. Young media enthusiasts learned interviewing techniques, how communication and misinformation work, public speaking tips, and many more.
Tuleviku Meedia founder and media literacy trainer Julia Rodina dedicated her lecture to how communication and misinformation work, what useful skills and tips we can learn from journalists: how to filter and fact-check information, and how information can change because of the sources who transfer it. Also, participants learned important interviewing techniques, which can also be used in real life: at school, work and university interviews, in everyday communication, etc.
The first day activities took place in the Tallinn TV Tower conference centre. In addition to the lecture, participants visited Tallinn TV Tower museum and discussed the place of this landmark in the history of Estonian state and media.
The second day of the EXTRA project focused on the psychological aspects of communication and how people perceive information, including verbal and non-verbal signals. Lecturer Jelena Solomina, who is ETV+ journalist and public-speaking trainer, gave very useful advice on how to prepare for a speech, what to take into account and spoke about her own personal experiance and her journalistic and TV-host journey.
Partner of our project, Shum media outlet has created an article about the project and listed tips from one of the lectures on how to become a successful communicator:
