Paris-based Clemi National creates resources for teachers and families. You can find them on the website www.clemi.fr. »

“By working in the media class you learn to discuss, to listen to others, to disagree and to respect each other. »

– What do you think of media classes, especially at our university?

“Media education is very important because it teaches by doing. That is, practicing helps students understand media. As part of media lessons, students have the opportunity to meet journalists, work together and thus become aware of what information is. By working in media classes we learn to discuss, to listen to others, not necessarily to agree and to respect each other. Media education allows students to develop their identity as citizens. By working with media, students develop many skills. »

– Why is media literacy important?

“It is a cross-curricular education, all teachers can teach it. It refers to the values ​​of the republic, liberty, equality and fraternity. These lessons make it possible to improve the school climate by developing critical thinking and debate. »
