Project: REthinking MEdia literacy and DIgital Skills in Europe

Acronym REMEDIS (Reference Number: CHANSE-177)
Duration 01/10/2022 - 01/10/2024
Project Topic Adopting an evidence-based approach to REthinking MEdia Literacy and DIgital Skills in Europe, REMEDIS seeks to provide a framework for evidence-based evaluative research of media literacy and digital skills. REMEDIS aims to inform practitioners and policymakers about so far severely underdeveloped evidence that links interventions around different types of media literacy and digital skills in different life domains to different types of positive outcomes in terms of (digital) inclusion and wellbeing. REMEDIS makes a leap across disciplines to realise its four objectives: 1) to improve existing theoretical knowledge about the actual outcomes of interventions, paying special attention to target groups; 2) to improve and enhance existing media literacy and digital skills intervention strategies based on the existing and emerging evidence generated across the different geographical and cultural contexts represented by the REMEDIS partners; 3) to adopt advanced methods, develop and validate instruments for evaluating interventions by using a range of outcome measures; 4) to produce evidence-based policy recommendations and develop a user-friendly, customisable evaluation toolkit. REMEDIS adopts an evidence-based flow in which each WP provides the inputs for each subsequent WP. WP1: The development of a systematic evidence review will enable us to identify the driving forces and outcomes of media literacy and digital skills and characteristics of potentially effective interventions that lead to positive outcomes. WP2: Co-development of enhancements and improvements of interventions considered promising for fostering (digital) inclusion and wellbeing. WP3: Evaluation and validation of a selected interventions informed by the findings of WP1&2, using randomised experimental evaluations and innovative quasi-experimental methods. WP4: Integration of results with key policymakers/practitioners, leading to the development of evidence-based policy recommendations and an evalua
