Following the UNESCO Global Assessment Framework for Media and Information Literacy (MIL), this research has gathered information on relevant aspects of a country’s readiness for MIL initiatives. Through the MIL framework “UNESCO brings together Information Literacy and Media Literacy, along with ICT and Digital Literacy, as a new literacy construct that helps to empower people, communities and nations to participate in, and contribute to, global knowledge societies”. Understanding a country’s challenges and opportunities for MIL interventions is helping us to better localize our intervention. We have focused on the Tier One area of MIL Education when evaluating the country’s readiness, more exactly this means: the existence or lack of national policies to implement ICT and digital literacy initiatives in schools, the offer of pedagogical training for teachers in these areas, and the existence of MIL related courses in the national curriculum of high school students.
The following are used as important variables to demonstrate the country’s MIL’s readiness;
Learners to computer ratio in primary and secondary
Provide access and proper use of ICT to the entire Plurinational Education System (SEP) and the community in general.
