Journalism as a Learning Tool
Youths nowadays are exposed to a wide range of media and sources, some of them reliable, some not. Unfortunately, the majority tend not to trust the media anymore, maybe because they lack analysis skills. Fake news is everywhere, and students struggle to identify them. Surveys among partner countries indicate that youths are less and less interested in taking part of public debate. This may lead to a democratically challenge.
The partnership in this project intent to develop innovative ways of dealing with these challenges. We will use journalism as tool for learning.
