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.
