School Radio for Global Citizenship - WORLD RADIO DAY

SEMINAR: SCHOOL RADIO FOR GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP
 
TARGET GROUP: Teachers, secondary students, school staff, parents, educational and cultural experts from authorities, broadcasters and citizens
 
CONTEXT
 
The World Radio Day recognizes the unique role and the impact of this media, that reaches the largest audience worldwide, reaching the most isolated communities. In the end of the world, radio is a strong feature that gives voice to the unheard, helps educate the illiterate and saves lives in situations of natural disasters. Having a clear force for freedom of expression and pluralism, radio is essential for building inclusive societies and promote respect and understanding among people, establishing intercultural dialogues and attitudes of peace in the communities.
The World Radio Day promotes the widespread celebration of this means of communication. The theme proposed by UNESCO for 2015 is "Youth and Radio", a topic that at the time of conceiving this seminar, the Teacher Training centre  "Centro de Formação Rui Grácio" has articulated with Global Citizenship Education.
Partner institution of the Comenius Regio project "School Radio for Learning", coordinated in Portugal by the Ministry of Education and Science, Dgeste-Dsral, and in England by Southwark Council of London, Dr. Rui Grácio Teacher Training Centre offers to  the educational community of the Algarve another opportunity to celebrate this day, reflecting on the pedagogical potential of school radio.
In the context of this international project, we have seen born two radios in Lagos school clusters, Radio Naus and Radio Tecnodantas FM, very young projects involving teachers and students that began to produce radio content for the development of communication skills, for socio-cultural development and for the educational success of the students.
Will be released this school year, a teacher training program on "School Radio: Pedagogical Potential for Educational Success" which will include the actual creation of radio content, as the primary vehicle of education for citizenship overall, based on the values of a culture of peace.
 
AIMS OF THE SEMINAR
 
- Raising awareness of the School Radio as a means for global citizenship education;
- Sharing School Radio projects with pedagogical potential in the development of students, teachers and the school community.
