Pupils today live, learn and play in a media-saturated society. For many of them the curriculum is not relevant, and they become disengaged from learning. Rapid developments in technology have brought many exciting changes to life, presenting new challenges for schools. Multiple new literacies are required to navigate the forest of signs and symbols of our globalized media culture. Globalization, immigration, poverty, terrorism, violence have created a society of increased diversity. All these change the school. Technologies, Internet and Multimedia - utilize these 21st century tools in your teacher practice. Bulgaria is a member of the European Union. Discover whether your class is a part of the European Educational Area.
