They create a global news item every day, explained in a didactic and contextualized way, to encourage reading the press and work on the information in class. They also offer an educational platform under subscription for academic centres, with materials and pedagogical resources to work on current affairs in the classroom. It includes slides and exercises that complement The Daily News and a catalogue of Didactic Units with activities to read, discuss and give opinions in class.
Junior Report's classroom workshops encourage critical reading of the media, teach how to identify fake news and promote the responsible use of news content. The Revista Escolar Digital (RED) project is a network of school newspapers managed, directed and edited by primary, secondary and high school students with the support of professional journalists. Students participating in the RED project report on current events in their environment and learn to identify 'fake news' based on a Work Plan and a virtual Activity Plan. In addition, the best content is published in the collaborative journal RED Report.
The organization also develops workshops on media education with materials created by teachers and journalists, adapted to different educational levels. They accompany the material with teacher guides that include criteria for evaluating the news and links to external resources. Some of the workshops are: Journalism and Gender Equality. Journalism and refugees. Journalism and fake news.
The initiative is currently active in 96 educational centres, reaching more than 8,500 students who learn to be better informed through appropriate channels.
