ECML was a 24 months project, which started in 2004 and ended in 2006, co-funded by the European Commission within the "eLearning Initiative" Programme.
The aim of the project was to create a European Centre for Media Literacy (ECML) as a no-profit educational organization that wanted to help stakeholders to understand why teaching media literacy is so important and to give students new education tools.
The project mission was to help children and adults prepare for living
and learning in a global media culture by translating media literacy research
and theory into practical information, training and educational tools
for teachers, youth leaders, parents, and caregivers of children.
