There are many conclusions that can be drawn when reading the reports of the 15 participating journalists, but there is one that is repeated every year: adolescents between 14 and 15 do not read newspapers, do not know how or where to report correctly, watch news only through television or social networks and, often, have no interest in the current list.
Show them that there are digital newspapers, that social networks are not strictly communication, that there is a lot of informative noise, that the news should be reviewed and given the tools to do so, it makes them perceive that what they are learning has a clear application and that's in your hand, so they can put it to good use.
The 'Arrive Premsa in IES' workshops make it clear that for adolescents to be critical, they must know the tools they have at their disposal.
