The Development of Media Literacy in the European Countries: Media Literacy Helps to be Competitive in the Labour Market

I spent July 6-8 in the Alpina Hotel - Rest House in Tsaghkadzor, and just on the first day, it seemed to me I had appeared in a European country where English was the language of communication. It turned out that the National Erasmus+ Office in Armenia was holding an assembly of students and young specialists from 8 European countries (Germany, Spain, Portugal, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Lithuania, Latvia and Armenia). At first, I didn't want to join them, but when I found out that they were discussing some aspects of media literacy and how it can help students to be competitive in the labour market, I expressed my willingness to be present at least at one session. Our first meeting was so warm. It was agreed that I could be present at their morning session at 10:30. The team of each country consisted of 4-5 students or young specialists. They had prepared their presentations with great responsibility. All the presentations were interesting and had a subtle flavour of national culture. It was extremely pleasant for me to listen to their speeches. They were speaking about the media and IT skills young people acquire in the educational institutions of their countries and in this way become competitive in the labour market. I myself presented our EduComplex and in a few sentences. I spoke about the media education carried out in the schools of our EduComplex.
