Media Education in Primary Schools
JSNS (OWIS – One World in Schools) has made media education (ME) one of its priorities and teachers in more than 4,000 Czech schools are used to working with our materials. The aim of the project Development of Media Education in Primary Schools through Audio-Visual Materials is to expand the currently limited offer of ME educational materials in the Czech Republic, and to contribute to the further education of the teachers who play a key role in the development of media literacy in pupils.
Thanks to the support provided by the OSF Foundation within the Active Citizens Fund programme, we can focus on strengthening media literacy in primary schools, particularly in the case of pupils in the 4th to 8th grades of primary schools and the corresponding grades in grammar schools (ages 9 to 14).
During the two-year project, we will offer this target group and their teachers the following:
- 3 comprehensive educational audio-visual lessons
- 3 full-day training seminars
- training for media education lecturers

The project is being supported by the Open Society Fund Prague from the Active Citizens Fund. The programme promotes citizens’ active participation in the public life and decision making and builds capacities of civil society organizations. The Active Citizens Fund is financed from the EEA and Norway Grants.
