Publication Date

"Media and Information Literacy has come to the fore as one of the most important fields in current media related development work."

Based on a 3-country study in Jordan, Moldova, and Uganda, this paper presents 5 profiles of potential beneficiaries to help media and information literacy (MIL) practitioners envisage the needs of their clientele. The profiles or personae are based on research conducted by Deutsche Welle (DW) Akademie in 2017 and 2018 using the Media and Information Literacy Assessment (MILA) instrument for measuring digital and news literacy. The aim of the study was to identify MIL needs of 15- to 35-year olds and to gain insights into the level of MIL in those countries.
