Digital and Media Literacy in Basic Education for Migrants

Digital and media literacy play a central role in basic education and the information society and are intensely examined in a MIKA. The following key questions are covered: How does acquisition of reading and writing competences support acquisition of language and digital and media competences and vice versa? How are they contingent on one another? How can digital and media literacy be taught “from the start” as an integral component of the basic education of migrants in combination with language (German as a second language but also in the context of plurilingualism as a resource) and other fields of learning? The results are feeded into a pilot course in 2017-2018 in Vienna and Innsbruck, organized by Verein Projekt Integrationshaus.
