Cé hiad Litearthacht sna Meáin, Éire?

Is comhaontas neamhfhoirmiúil de dhaoine aonair agus eagraíochtaí iad Litearthacht sna Meáin, Éire (LMÉ), a oibríonn le chéile ar bhonn deonach (den chuid is mó) chun litearthacht sna meáin a chur chun cinn in Éirinn .Tá LMÉ éascaithe ag Coimisiún na Meán agus tá breis agus 250 ball in LMÉ ó raon leathan earnálacha.

Is í ár bhfís ná go mbeadh na scileanna agus an mhuinín ag gach duine in Éirinn chun teacht ar ábhar agus seirbhísí ar gach ardán agus go mbeidís in ann iad sin a mheas go criticiúil. Go mbeadh tuiscint agus cumas acu ceisteanna a chur mar a oibríonn na meáin agus an teicneolaíocht dhigiteach, go mbeidís in ann rioscaí a shainaithint agus a bhainistiú, agus go mbeidís in ann páirt a ghlacadh sa phobal ar bhealach freagrach, eiticiúil agus éifeachtach.

Chun aistriú go leagan Béarla an tsuímh seo, brúigh an cnaipe ‘EN’ thuas. Tá Gluais Gaeilge de théarmaí litearthachta sna meáin forbartha againn le haistriúcháin ar fhocail agus ar théarmaí agus samplaí d’úsáid na dtéarmaí i bhfoirm abairtí.

Cad is litearthacht sna meáin ann?

    mbealach is fearr.
  • Rochtain ar ábhar agus seirbhísí craolta agus meán digiteach agus úsáid a bhaint astu ar
