RESOURCES: Revised and improved Education Makes News training kit goes online

Revised and improved Education Makes News training kit goes online

10-03-2006 (Paris)

UNESCO has launched revised and improved the EFA media training and resource
Kit "Education Makes News" for writing and reporting on Education for All
(EFA), an international initiative to achieve education for all by 2015.

The kit has been produced and revised with the objective of encouraging the
communication media to highlight EFA goals locally, regionally and globally.

The kit will be used to develop the interest, knowledge and skills of
journalists and other media professionals in writing, reporting and
investigating the EFA issues and help them to create stories from dull and
dry statistics and bring the EFA debate to the center stage.

The revised kit has been updated with recent statistics, facts, and examples
and newly organized contents. The technology used in the Computer Based
Training (CBT) is simplified for easy use by learners/trainers.

The kit can be downloaded from
