Teachers in training

FIJI Media Watch says Fijian teachers face several challenges as a result of the technological evolution.

This was revealed by the executive director Agatha Ferei-Furivai at a three- day workshop — Media A Creative Tool for Classroom Learning.

Mrs Furivai said in recent workshops with primary and secondary school teachers and students in Suva, one of these challenges was the lack of media education among school members.

"In the last two decades Fiji Media Watch had raised awareness on the impact of mass media among individuals, families and communities," Mrs Furivai said.

"FMW has also organised workshops and training for students, teachers, community leaders and public members.

"The aim of the workshop is to share with the education officers knowledge and skills relating to media education as a creative tool in classroom learning."

She said Fiji Media Watch promoted freedom of expression/opinion, the right to information and media freedom therefore continued to work with the different sections of society to become both analytical and creative users of new communication technologies (ICT).

This, she said, included the lack of knowledge and skills in computer software, Internet safety, applications and appropriate usage of media tools.

"The vision of FMW is for a media literate Fiji."
