Edukacja medialna w kształceniu wczesnoszkolnym – założenia a rzeczywistość szkolna
Media in elementary education – assumptions versus classroom reality
Languages of publication
Nowadays, in a time of wide access to technology, it is particularly important to prepare children and young people to function in the information society. Reading and media education, which as an interdisciplinary path was implemented in elementary education in 1999, was meant to serve this purpose. Its removal from the curriculum and the introduction of computer classes in its place changed the way of thinking about the role of the media in integrated education. In this article I am trying to show that this decision has had a negative effect on education in the field of children’s preparation for the critical and thoughtful usage of both traditional and modern media. The conclusions drawn from the core curriculum currently in force are compared to the results of research conducted among teachers and relating to their opinion about using the media in elementary education.
