Media Literacy Training for Educators: The Public Affairs Section of the Embassy of the United States in Panama announces an open competition for organizations to submit funding applications for a project to provide training to teachers and professors in Panama to integrate media literacy and critical thinking into their existing curricula. Please carefully follow all instructions below. Project Objectives: This project advances the U.S. interest in making Panamanian institutions more resilient, transparent, and democratic through the promotion of media literacy as a preventative measure against misinformation. Through educational methods and materials that promote media literacy and associated critical thinking skills, citizens will be better able to evaluate and hold to account not only the media but also other sources of information. Project Description: This project will deliver a series of trainings for educators—focusing primarily on those who teach English through the Panama Bilingue program—to integrate media literacy and critical thinking into their existing curricula at all educational levels. The approach and materials will be modeled on Ithaca College's Project Look Sharp or an equivalent program. The trainings will be conducted in person with interactive exercises and include both materials and strategies not only to teach the educators about media literacy, but also to empower them to convey that knowledge to their students. Trainings should be tailored to groups of educators at different educational levels (e.g. primary, secondary, university). Course materials may include existing kits and lesson plans, but should include additional material localized to Panama. The proposal should include a method for follow-up evaluation and qualitative measurement of results for both the educators and their students. Grant funding should be used for any and all expenses for the program, including but not limited to personnel, course materials, venue costs, and the transportation of participants. Partners and Audience: The ideal implementer of this project will have knowledge of Panama's educational sector and methods for countering misinformation in the public sphere and have the capacity to convey this knowledge through training. Additional familiarity with the political, media, and business environment in Panama is a plus. The audience will be teachers and professors of English or the social sciences, with particular focus on those who teach English through the Panama Bilingue program.
