The Global Alliance for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy (GAPMIL) is offering an International MIL Award with support from UNESCO and the UNAOC. This award is intended to honor an educator in any subject area from kindergarten through university, as long as their curriculum reflects integration of media and information literacy (MIL) concepts with a focus on intercultural dialogue. (Categories and themes will be expanded in future years.)
MIL covers media literacy, information literacy and related literacies with digital literacy as crosscutting to all aspects.
Please consult the UNESCO Media and Information Literacy Curriculum for Teachers for further details on MILID education @ http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/resources/publications-and-communication-materials/publications/full-list/media-and-information-literacy-curriculum-for-teachers/
