Recognizing the importance of explorative and critical thinking, the Lyceum constantly strives to create opportunities for students to develop those skills not only during the class time but also in practice by seeing and hearing directly from the role models.
On November 18th, DP 1st and 2nd year students, chaperoned by the French teacher Anahit Gharaghazaryan, visited “Mediamax” news agency. They were introduced to the role and importance of the news agency, considered being the 4th authority, in shaping public opinion.
Our representatives were received by the agency’s deputy director, chief editor Mr. Davit Alaverdyan, who talked about information wars and media manipulations, presented interesting facts and methods and their consequences in media area. The students also shared their observations during Q&A session.
“Discussions and meetings in this format are really beneficial for the youth in shaping worldview, providing awareness and developing critical and analytical skills” – mentioned Mrs. Gharaghazaryan.
