In an increasingly abstract educational and formative context, geared more to "what" rather than "how," it becomes fundamental to make teachers and educators reflect on universal themes and values related to family and life. In this way of analysis and reflection, literature, cinema, and tv series can be valid and of great help, in particular to identify those virtues that are the basis of our social relations and fundamental cornerstones for a more solid, just, and fair society.
From this educational requirement, Familyandmedia Education is born, a new e-learning portal, which offers video courses in Italian, English, and Spanish, focusing specifically on the relationship between family, media, and society. The courses are given by great professionals in the field of communication and storytelling, in a professional manner, but are at the same time engaging and passionate.
