In a world of content and information, it is essential to teach students to remain critical of the multiple media messages to which they are exposed. The regular use of current events to support various learning scenarios is essential as a coherent approach towards the development of informational, artistic, technological and ethical skills.

Moreover, the contribution of the media can be exploited in all disciplines. Richard (2016) believes that “from now on, new skills related to ethics, behavioral habits on social networks, information research and processing and the use of digital tools are necessary”, qu 'it "becomes imperative to integrate, in the objectives pursued by media literacy, training in critical thinking aimed at equipping students so that they can act on digital networks in a responsible, prudent and ethical manner" .

Finally, he indicates that “the role of the teacher, through an explicit process of interactive questioning, thus appears central in getting students to be critical of the various media they use. The development of critical thinking towards digital technology is also part of the Reference framework for digital competence of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.

If you are also of this opinion, we invite you to discover our collection of digital educational guides SCOOP!. Each guide presents suggestions for activities using tools that promote the development of information-seeking and processing skills or that focus on developing students' understanding of the world. The subscription includes more than 600 guides placing current events at the center of a variable and flexible educational approach.

In addition, this year, SCOOP! will offer adapted guides for primary school teachers: "Primary school teachers already found their account in our vast collection of guides, but this year, we have developed tools to make it easier for them to identify the level of education targeted, both in primary than in secondary. », Says Maxime Laflamme, educational advisor and project manager at École branchée. 

And that's not all! The team is preparing other great new features that you will hear about soon. Until then, you can download our selection of free guides in register here.
