The Asian Network of News & Information Educators, or ANNIE for short, is a not-for-profit organisation registered in Hong Kong.

 

We aim to facilitate a network of educators, journalists, media professionals, policymakers, and other stakeholders in the field of media and information literacy across Asian countries.

 

Our goal is to develop and share educational resources that would help teachers and learners understand the complexity of information ecology in the Asian region. 

 

We aspire to build a culture of connected instructors and inquisitive learners beyond borders. Through our network, we try to learn from each other.
