From the World into the class room
Even though a new generation is rising their voice in one country after another at the african continent demanding democracy, this is a movement that is not covered by the media. The organization Blank Spot Project are going to cover this issue from inside the african countries and stay for a longer time than what is usually possible for journalist, in order to give these democracy movements a voice. Through digital communication and a tool that enables live streaming to interract with the journalists when they are in the field, Swedish pupils can communicate with the reporters in their class room. This enables a greater understanding of journalism, how a journalist work and the role the media play in a democrazy. At the same time, this enables the teachers to discuss with the students the importance of having a critical approach to what is reported in the media.
