BODY AND MEDIA - Media Education at School

Valentina Percivalle, Maria Assunta Zanetti, Paola Rossi

Abstract

This research aims to investigate how the messages from media (TV, web, radio and so on) influence our choice, in term of look, diet, dietary habits and sport. In particular, the work that we present is focused on the use of Media Education to promote a new awareness in adolescence about the influence that the messages from media have on our behaviours. In this way, we can promote new competences about comprehension and production of communication both by face-to-face way and both by media. Moreover, we can promote a new and more functional image of body in adolescence.
