Newspapers in the schools

Around 50 social workers attended a meeting in Sulay- maniya organised by the Kurdish ministry of education to talk about using newspapers in the classroom. On Saturday February 28 IMCK informed them about projects (of NIE, Newspapers in Education) in more then 60 countries all over the world where newspapers are used in the education, and about the positive results on students and society.

Together with editors in chief and the ministry the mediacentre is trying to initiate the program in Kurdistan. IMCK-assistant Jenda Terpstra explained during the meeting some of the lessons which can be taught using the papers. Social workers showed great enthusiasm to start on the program, which will first be tested in a number of schools in Sulaymaniya.
