CREATIVE READING AND WRITING: EXCHANGE OF TEACHING STRATEGIES IN ADULT EDUCATION
The project is designed to promote media literacy, exchange of experience and practices between organizations involved in adult education. A general vulnerability linked to age should be acknowledged and effective measures taken. Partners want to involve to the project activities adult learners who have difficulties to understand media texts and to express themselves in mainstream and especially in social media, to show their needs and opinions to general public and decision makers. Reading and writing competencies can improve their self-confidence and lifestyle, to support their involvement in the social life and motivate for future learning.

The specific objectives of this project are:
- to support the improvement of the level of competences for adult educators, those who work with learners with fewer opportunities;
- to allow them to acquire various abilities applicable to a wide variety of issues in media literacy field;
- to expose ICT tools that are embedded in purposeful learning, allowing to transfer knowledge from one tool to another;
