Learn to Discern in Schools will support the next generation of Ukrainian media consumers to navigate increasingly complex information spaces and make informed decisions in their schools and communities by:
- Teaching practical information and media literacy skills at secondary schools through a transformative pilot curriculum that builds on existing class subjects.
- Engaging education sector partners and specialists in media literacy, curriculum design, and teacher training.
- Ensuring Ukrainian teachers have the educational resources and institutional support needed to ensure that critical information consumption skills become an official and permanent part of secondary school curricula.
"Education is absolutely the key to cultivating smart media consumers and to countering disinformation… It is more important than ever that our children—our future leaders—develop critical thinking skills in order to sort out truth from fiction."
US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie L. Yovanovitch, Learn to Discern in Schools launch event
