The concept notes that national-patriotic education of children and youth is a complex systemic and purposeful activity of state authorities, public organizations, families, educational institutions, other social institutions to form a high patriotic consciousness, loyalty, love for the homeland in the young generation. concern for the welfare of its people, readiness to fulfill the civil and constitutional duty to protect the national interests, integrity, independence of Ukraine. The most important priority of national-patriotic education is the formation of a valued attitude of the individual to the Ukrainian people, homeland, state and nation. The authors of the concept see ways to implement patriotic education of children and youth in improving the legal framework of patriotic education of youth, the activities of public authorities and local governments, cooperation of public authorities and local governments with civil society, information support of national and patriotic education of children.

To avoid informational impact, you need to have media literacy
V. Gromova: teachers must be protected from propaganda
Author: Victor Gromovoy, educational expert, Honored Teacher of Ukraine.
In a science lesson in the 5th grade, the teacher showed 123helpme.me a video clip of a new Russian propaganda project "Live. RF", which outraged one of the parents, a member of the anti-terrorist operation Yuri Kozachinsky.
Of course, there is a simple path that is likely to be chosen by local education leaders: not to protect this teacher, to punish her demonstratively, "so that others would not be offended" and to effectively cover themselves.
I do not agree with the position that such teachers should not be protected. They must be protected! Protect from propaganda! They need to be taught to protect themselves and the children they work with. Of course, it is better to do this before they become repeaters of certain propaganda "messages".
Some of our teachers are disoriented, their actions sometimes lack logic and common sense. They still sit in Russia’s Odnoklassniki and stupidly consume the illusion of truth from Russian political technologists.
The authors of the video clip of the project "Live. RF" carried out an "attack with love" – and the teacher easily fell for this propaganda technology. After all, in this and other videos of Russian propaganda there are words that evoke in the viewer only positive emotions (life, love, peace, happiness, security, freedom …), "correct" aphorisms such as "peace peace" are used, and so on. To see the subtext behind the text is also aerobatics of pedagogical skill.
Dear colleagues-educators, the information war continues. The Kremlin propagandists managed to break down almost all barriers to critical thinking of ordinary Russians and a large part of Ukrainians. Therefore, we urgently need to build protection against hybrid information aggression by Russia, which aims to influence people’s behavior, consciousness and thoughts.
This is not easy to do, because Russian propaganda is constantly mimicking, it is flexible and has no moral barriers. Despite some punctures, the Russian information machine works quite effectively.
To consider the signs of controlled information influence, it is necessary to have at least minimal skills of critical thinking and media literacy.
Needless to say, the vast majority of Ukrainian teachers do not have this.
Needless to say, we are not doing anything to teach them to recognize at least the typical signs of covert manipulation.
If this teacher knew that one of such signs is a situation when there is a clear "pressure on feelings", she would understand that it is better to temporarily "harden", not to succumb to the bombardment of love, and try to understand what is hidden behind this video.
If someone had conducted a media campaign for this teacher, she would have known at least simple answers to difficult questions:
What is the peculiarity of media manipulation?
It is always hidden. If you understand that you are being purposefully influenced, you will no longer be manipulated. Kremlin propagandists are looking for an emotional connection with people, so they reject the facts in favor of emotions, creating a "parallel reality."
Manipulation technologies for the "external consumer" have a subtle effect, lies become clickable, it feeds the existing stereotypes of our people.
Is there a way to protect yourself from media manipulation?
IS! Turn off the TV and get out of their "Classmates" and "Vkontakte". Instead, you need to read more, because in this case you can always put off the text and think for yourself, that is, turn on critical thinking.
