In the European parts of Russia (Archangelsk, Belgorod, Vladimir, Voronezh, Kazan, Krasnodar, Penza, Rostov-on-Don, St.Petersburg, Saratov, Smolensk, Taganrog, Tambov, Tver, Tolyatti and so on.) there is a lot of pedagogues, who strive to develop media competence among different age groups with different social status. More and more media educational centers are emerging. The dean at the Faculty of Journalism of Belgorod State University, professor A.P. Korochensky, has become a founder of a leading Scientific Media Critic School in Russia. A new media Philosophic School has been opened in St. Petersburg (professor V.V.Savchuk is the leader) and a school of theory and journalistic practice (professor S.G.Korkonosenko is the leader). A scientific school media physiology school exists on the ground of Saratov State University. There are media educational schools in Samara and Smolensk. Although, according to our analysis, the most fundamental theoretical and practical results in the area of media education, have been achieved at the regional media educational centers of Tver, Voronezh and Taganrog.
