The Secondary School and the Mass Media Symposium (Grenoble, France, June 29 - July 3, 1981). CDCC Project No. 1 "Preparation for Life."
Part of a major project of the Council for Cultural Cooperation, the project described was specifically designed to identify the aims of, the main approaches to, and problems encountered when teaching secondary school students how to use mass media, and to make proposals on how mass media education can be effectively delivered. Following a brief description of the project and the symposium program, summaries are given of the following lectures and the ensuing discussions: (1) "School and Media," Rene Dubuox (Switzerland); (2) "The Press in Schools," Claude Gambiez (France); and (3) "Television Studies as a Discipline," L. Masterman (United Kingdom). Two plenary sessions are described, followed by reports from three working groups, each of which briefly discusses four themes in relation to the education of young people in schools: media use and citizen education; young people, adults, and the media; the use of the image in teaching; and the implications of media studies for teacher training. Symposium recommendations are listed in four categories: mass media education, use of the image in teaching, media teaching, and teacher training. General conclusions presented by P. Corset conclude the report. Appendices contain the "UNESCO Statement for the Symposium on Secondary School and the Media," by Etienne Brunswic, the Unesco representative, and lists of participants, observers, and journalists who were in attendance.
