OFF-LINE AND ON-LINE MEETINGS

ON-LINE

Children in Székesfehérvár schools came up with very different ideas for the campaigns. The teams worked well together and enjoyed presenting their campaigns. Feedback showed that they really liked the fact that they were able to select possible themes for their campaign ideas. The evaluation of the campaigns took place in different ways. Some teachers gave the winning teams different gifts, such as homemade cookies. Further feedback showed that the children are very aware of the dangers of pseudo-news and are quite good at dealing with them on their own. This was also reflected in the development of the campaigns.
