Understanding media and cultures

The video capsule focuses on how media education can facilitate students’ understanding of media and intercultural relations. Firstly, it shows how analysing in small groups video games and movies representing different social groups, including migrants and refugees, can lead students to recognise the ideological and linguistic aspects of media representations, as well as to tackle the topic of human rights in contemporary society. Furthermore, the video illustrates how students’ involvement in the design of video games addressing the issues of equal rights can also contribute to their critical understanding of media representations and social justice.
