Zaffiria works in the field of Media Education since 1998 and manages the national Centre Alberto Manzi (Italian pedagogist known above all for his literacy programmes in RAI tv). Zaffiria organizes training for teachers and workshops in school and extra school, with projects like “Extramedia”, for which it won the Evens Prize for Media Education 2013 as best European Project, awarded by the Evens Foundation in Paris.
Zaffiria develops training tools for students and teachers in collaboration with public institutions as Corecom Emilia-Romagna: corecomragazziemiliaromagna.it, a website for schools where video materials are collected, a videogame produced by Zaffiria (Hamelin 2.0) and teacher materials as the “Quaderno di media education” to support school’s media education activities. Zaffiria is engaged in European projects about media education since 2005 with the first project Media-Educ (2002-5765/001 – 001 EDU-ELEARN). Until now, we were involved in different forms in 8 European projects.
