How can we create an early relationship to the local media amongst children?

”Little Journalist”, or ”Bläcket”, is a tool where children and young people can play-act the role of the journalist. Together, pupils become an editorial staff as they create news stories and fact­-check existing news reporting. The concept is about establishing a collaboration between local journalists, schools and pupils. As physical newspapers have become increasingly digitised, children have less insight into the media world of adults. Children and young people today risk growing up with a weak connection to local media. ”Little Journalist” aims to restore this connection.
