Everyone interested in media education is welcome, there will be experts in the field, teachers, students, researchers, all with a flair for media.
The idea that lies behind this event is to make people discuss and outline the potential of media education and its future in Italy. Will there be the possibility to teach it at school? If so, how are teachers going to put it into practice?
