Title: Children and their own land: building connections through reporting
Author: Nardi, Federica; Nicolini, Paola
Abstract: Este artículo se centra en los talleres de periodismo celebrados en Ussita (Italia) durante el invierno de 2019. Los talleres iban dirigidos a niños e involucraron a niños locales de 5 a 10 años. Este proyecto era parte de la recopilación de datos para el programa de investigación doctoral "Creciendo informado". El método incluyó observación de los participantes, grabación de campo, material escrito y dibujado. Ussita es una de las ciudades destruidas por los terremotos de 2016. Elegimos este lugar porque el programa de investigación se centra también en la educación en medios como una manera para desarrollar la conciencia territorial. La conciencia territorial puede ser crucial después de un terremoto, ya que es una de las características que crean resiliencia. La principal actividad didáctica consistió en explicar a los niños cómo hacer entrevistas, coincidiendo con un formato anterior que estudiamos en 2018. Se realizaron entrevistas en diferentes lugares y situaciones. Pudieron conocer a un fotógrafo, un biólogo (Ussita forma parte de un Parque Nacional) y un miembro de una asociación local. Los niños también visitaron a varias personas mayores en sus hogares de emergencia para entrevistarlos. Organizamos un seguimiento en abril en el que tuvieron que entrevistar a algunos adultos locales sobre un festival tradicional que estaba a punto de celebrarse. El grupo logró entrevistar a estas personas, incluso si el contexto era ligeramente diferente, mostrando que recordaban lo que habían aprendido. Los resultados muestran cómo los niños lograron abordar una variedad de temas locales (naturaleza, historia, problemas, oportunidades) entrevistando a las personas y cómo la actividad afectó su conciencia local en este momento sensible.This paper focuses on the journalism workshops held in Ussita (Italy) during the 2019’s winter. The workshops were aimed at children and they involved local kids from 5 to 10 years old. This project was a part of the data collection for the doctoral research program “Growing up informed”. The method involved participants observation, field recording, written and drawn material. Ussita is one of the towns wrecked by the earthquakes of 2016. We chose this place because the research program focuses also on media education as a mean to develop territorial awareness. Territorial awareness may be crucial after an earthquake, for it is one of the features that create resilience. The main teaching activity was about explaining to children how to make interviews, matching a previous format we studied in 2018. They made interviews in different locations and situations. They were able to meet a photographer, a biologist (Ussita is part of a National Park), a member of a local association. The children also visited several old people in their emergency homes to interview them. We organized a follow up in April in which they had to interview some local adults about a traditional festival that was about to be held. The group managed to interview these people, even if the context was slightly different, showing they remembered what they have learned. The results show how children managed to tackle a variety of local topic (nature, history, problems, opportunity) by interviewing people and how the activity affected their local awareness in this sensitive moment.
