Innovating Education with Media

Presentation

This plenary presentation session will highlight the value media can bring to education.

It will begin with a presentation by celebrated movie-maker David Puttnam talking about the value and impact media can have in education generally which will lead to an introduction to this year’s MEDEA Awards. These awards are now in their seventh year and celebrate excellence in the production and pedagogical design of media-rich learning resources.

Coffee Break

According to wikipedia, the 'coffee break' allegedly originated in the late 19th century in Wisconsin, USA with the wives of Norwegian immigrants - but in conference terms it has come to mean the time when you meet old friends and catch up on news and developments. During Media and Learning we plan to improve on this idea by making sure you also meet new people and will be providing you with a participants list and a code for contacting anyone attending the conference using your mobile phone. This way you can use the coffee break to really expand your network .... and don't worry - we will also be providing coffee, tea and fresh drinks!
