INFLUENCE OF THE MEDIA ON THE EDUCATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE IN MALI: LESSONS FOR EXTRACURRICULAR PEDAGOGY AND INFORMAL EDUCATION
This work focuses on the influence of the media on the education of young people in Mali. The emphasis is on the out-of-school pedagogy and informal education lessons that emerge. The objective is to emphasize the educational interests linked to the media in the education of the youth in Mali. To do this, we used the qualitative method through semi-structured interviews and documentary research. It results from the investigations that the media cannot act as educators because of their reification and because education must be interactive and retroactive. This lack of dialogue between the learner and the media concerned relegates the latter to a secondary level. In the context of out-of-school pedagogy and informal education, the media can still play a major role due to their preponderance in social processes, including education and learning. This requires an organization of media productions and a strong involvement of institutions (families, schools, etc.) for objective framing.
