"By teaching media literacy, you can start with the Ten Commandments of the Ethics of Computing or the ISC code of ethics. It would also be a good idea to make them reflect on the dangers of the internet, the misuse of the machines and the addictions they may even create, through images, experiences and after they write their reflections."


Andrea García Fernández



"Our library is just bringing press to our 3rd. and 4th. grade classes by reading or watching news articles, in a project shared with Osnovna Skola Tunaj, from Karlovac, Croatia. We choose news articles that are appealing to childreen and that may set a discussion on social, environmental or ethical issues. The discussion follows an adapted version of Mathew Lipmann's method for philosophy for childreen.

For now, our main concern is to develop reading literacy, speach and social skills, autonomy and freedom of thought, childreen's awareness about what's happening around them and a link between school and families. Once this goals are achieved, we may start thinking about developing a critic attitude towards media."

"Teaching media literacy you may start with the 'Ten Commandments of Computer Ethics or the ISC code of ethics. There are also interesting lesson plans available on teaching 'digital citizenship' so that pupils take ownership of their digital lives: https://www.commonsense.org/education/

You can help students consume media wisely by making them first consider and reflect their media use so far and by discussing what they themselves would like to change to become more 'enlightened' media users. There are helpful videos that demonstrate how you can test news on their reliability."


Beate Vollmer



"Learning "with media" does not mean the same as learning "for the media"

There is no hour where it is not studied through the media and with the media, the press, the radio, the television, the internet, the music, the book, the theater, the film ... students to acquire competences, understanding, the ability to interpret them,

The most common example of media literacy is the study of the mother tongue, but also in other subjects. But it would be good to introduce and there is a special subject, mandatory or optional. Plus, additional activities related to school sections, newspapers, editions for young people, etc."
