In the past decade, digital media literacy has undergone an evolution in Lebanon, from being practically unheard of to being promoted by academies and universities, even finding its way into some schools as an extracurricular activity.Media literacy curricula should also be offered by schools, Melki said. He said some schools, such as the Jesus & Mary School in Metn's Rabieh and Al-Kawthar School in Beirut's southern suburbs, have started teaching media literacy, with Beirut's International College spearheading the initiative.There are plans to include digital media literacy in the new curriculum for public and private schools in Lebanon, Education Ministry spokesperson Albert Chamoun told The Daily Star.Digital media is relatively new, and the current curriculum mainly covers traditional media, he said.However, plans to develop a new curriculum are underway, and the committees that will be in charge of it will make it a point to include digital media literacy, he said.
