Taking part in the meeting were 24 young people from the Salesian houses of Arequipa, Ayacucho, Cusco, Quebrada Honda, Huancayo, Piura, Lima and Magdalena del Mar.
The aim was to lay the foundations for the formation of a Provincial team of communication teachers for the schools so as to promote in the various Salesian centres the "Communicator in School" project.
The young people studied various topics including "The media and the school: a new Educommunication proposal" developed by Fr Jurado, the presentation of the pedagogical project, methodology of working, the impact of the media and the use of technology at the service of formation.
Since technology is one of the main areas of educommunication, Fr Jurado expressed the hope that they would learn how to use it: "We want teachers who can work with the technology, since this is essential in order to know the three instruments of the mass media: television, radio and the press. I believe that in this way it will help the educators to create practical formation procedures with sound, words and images."
During the Mass at the end of the meeting, Fr Vicente Santilli, Provincial of the Salesians in Perú, encouraged those taking part to face up to the challenge of being communicators in the style of Jesus and in the search for the truth, and to continue the development of educommunication.
