The project "Journalists @ Work" was born from the need to train the young protagonists of information on the web to a qualified use of the Internet and the information system 2.0. Our Europe is a melting pot of peoples, traditions, histories that today, more than ever, bind and blend thanks to the Internet and social networks. Capital which, despite being the principal places, it becomes increasingly common heritage and shared within the continental perimeter. A heritage to defend and advertise. To defend, to those on the web for various reasons attempt to alter the information from the places, the places, to be advertised because every single citizen of Europe could draw on the history and culture of peoples. Speaking of people, the "people network" is drinking the information in any way distracted and without criticism, with risks imaginable. Families, for example, ignore what their children do on the computer or with your smartphone, as you notify us through these means and those who provide information content provider. Our project was born from the need to train young people to be conscious use of new media through a strong emotional impact and witness, sharing and collaboration.
Ultimately, the partners was put in a position of no longer being informants on the internet, but journalists recognized for ability and authority appropriate to inform families, teachers, responsible for the education of youth, through the use of journalistic techniques that use new media for the transmission of real news, certified, authoritative, away from the "hoaxes" running on the network. The methodology used by the project follows the non-formal education and peer-education, cooperation among peers, the involvement of young professionals in the field of journalism, marketing, analysis of new media.
It involved nine foreign partners representing Armenia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine and Azerbaijan; each partner participated in the activity with 4 young people (2 boys and 2 girls) aged between 18 and 30 years. Each group had a coordinator who took care of the needs of young people during the project.
The results that we obtained bind to an awareness of the phenomenon and the risks related to the journalism of the road on the Internet ye say to people who have no title, no preparation and then journalism and certainly not certified, but unfortunately quite in vogue among "digital natives ", in this context, participants were asked to grow together on the road of the rightness of the information that comes from places and countries of origin, because this can be a source of correct information even faster, but also showcase tourist resort known in part or known incorrectly. This was possible thanks to the extensive use of the internet and new technologies, but also the mainstream media, the latter understood as local amplifiers of the project that sustained itself with its pedi. that is, with the internet and with the partner young journalists.
