Given the worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus, it was decided to cancel the inaugural class.

Media offer us many opportunities in terms of communication, entertainment and information. However, there are also risks to our well-being and safety. During these lessons, we look at social media and game addiction, fake news and other forms of disinformation, and hidden forms of
advertising. The aim is to develop students' media literacy and to teach them a series of strategies that they can use to benefit from the opportunities offered by the media, while also guarding against the risks. The lessons also discusses what schools, regulators and
media products can do to empower young people to cope with media online.
