This week aims to help students, from kindergarten to high school: understand the media system, form their critical judgment, develop their taste for current events and forge their identities as citizens.
Registered teachers of primary, higher and secondary education, together with their students, participate in this operation organized by the Center for Media and Information Education (CLEMI). This 33rd edition, an event that is part of the French Presidency of the European Union, will contribute to the development of a European dimension.
Learn to understand the world
To understand the world around them, more than ever, students must learn to inform themselves through critical thinking. This theme of the SPME thus makes it possible to return to the foundations of media and information literacy: distinguishing the different sources, understanding the context of production and dissemination of information, knowing the uses and effects of images, know how to deconstruct stereotypes.
