About the innovation

What is it all about?

Triplet is a media service for teachers, that uses daily news topics as a basis for classroom discussions and assignments. News can be dealt with pedagogically in a variety of ways by taking different age groups into consideration. The use of news stories in class improves students’ understanding of current affairs and plays an important role in the development of media literacy.

The service provides teachers with three news videos and articles each morning that include additional content and exercises to be used in class. The teacher can also prepare questions suited for the lesson in question alongside the pre-planned content.

By watching Triplet news videos and assessing the content provided and by completing the exercises related to the content, students learn to examine and analyze the influence and impact of media. In addition to current affairs, you can search for topics by category ie. by school subject.. Triplet can be accessed online and is available for mobile use (Android and iOS). The service is provided for teachers. Students do not have to log in.

Triplet is a free application aiming to assist in improving teachers' media education skills.
