The KLASSE! Project relies on media skills

New content, new project modules, new design: with the start of the school year 2021/2022, the KLASSE! Project of the Main-Post media group is presenting itself as a contemporary platform for media studies lessons. The offer has always changed in the 25 years of its existence and adapted to the current media world. The focus has always been on helping teachers impart media skills to their classes? Nothing changed about that.

CLASS! aims to help schoolchildren to get to know all kinds of media, to compare them and to use them sensibly. All KLASSE! Modules are free of charge, the teachers enjoy complete freedom in their design. CLASS is suitable! for all types of schools, the Bavarian curricula provide for media studies in practically all grades.

In addition to the tried and tested project modules, the KLASSE! Team will be offering media customers via live stream every Thursday from the new school year. Another new offer: those responsible for KLASSE! Are in direct contact with the participating teachers via a newsletter.

Diverse teaching material for teachers

The CLASS! Teaching material is under retrievable and offers information on media customers in word, image, video, quiz formats, e-learning modules and presentations.

Three questions for the KLASSE! -Team

Question: Why does a regional daily newspaper offer a media project for schools?

Peter Krones: Because it is of great importance for young people to find their way around the almost impenetrable media world. News, private as well as public, are part of the everyday world of experience for all young people. The KLASSE! Project provides information about the sensible use of media through the school, i.e. through the teachers.

The KLASSE! Project takes place almost exclusively digitally. Why does a daily newspaper like Main-Post forego the use of printed newspapers in such a project?

Maria Faiß: Because it depends on the journalistic content and not on the transport medium. We want to achieve the reality of life for the students, and that is now digitally shaped. In addition, all participating classes receive a 1: 1 version of the printed daily newspaper via free access to the e-paper.

We would be happy if as many classes as possible want to experience media customers live and come to us!
