This area seeks to develop activities to encourage the use of programming and digital methodologies in the field of communication. The activities are focused both on a formative dimension with an academic approach and on a practical dimension with tools and frameworks.
The extension projects in this area are inspired and based on FGV ECMI’s Innovation Cube laboratory and work in line with research and partners involved with the Cube. The projects propose innovations related to digital games, mixed, virtual or augmented reality, and artificial intelligence, among other topics within the scope of the Cube.
The activities in this area focus on media literacy and developing an ability to identify and understand different types of media, based on a critical approach of messages and their production processes. This involves the analysis of text messages, memes, viral videos, social media, videogames, publicity and other publications in order to develop projects for fact-checking and digital content production.
The extension projects at FGV ECMI are chosen through annual selections, and the topics are in line with the School’s pedagogical project and with the faculty’s abilities and interests. Seeking the development of innovative initiatives, extension at FGV ECMI encourages partnerships and collaborations with other educational institutions, organizations of civil society and companies.
