In a media-saturated world it is crucial to empower children and young people to deal with the media which means that we have to develop Media Literacy. To do that the society has to prepare them to do critical analysis and reflexive production of media messages both in traditional and new media. Besides that at school it is important to allow the students discuss and choose the topics that they want to talk about. This paper presents results of a Media Education project in Portugal (2008-2011) about school newspapers production. By the end of the project we analyzed all the school newspapers editions and pointed out the preferred topics of the students. The paper also presents three ongoing researches: one about school stories in local newspapers before and after the project; another about what students and teachers talk about in social media and a third one about how students, teachers and parents deal with social media in Portugal, France and Italy.
