MEDEAnet Handbook: The Use of Documentary Film in the Classroom

New educational material on the use of documentary film in the classroom developed during one of the MEDEAnet workshops in 2013 in Romania by ActiveWatch.

The cinematographic analysis of the documentary film and its use in the classroom are illustrated with the help of ‘Our School’ – a film that documents the Roma children’s segregation in the Romanian schools.

Before the screening of the film in the classroom the brochure recommends teachers several reflective question points that help them make a first introspection into their own stereotypes and prejudice toward the Roma ethnics and into their own stand towards school segregation.

ONAIR: "Let's Discover What's Behind News"- Pedagogical Kit

ActiveWatch publishes a new educational product aimed at secondary school pupils to better understand news production and to learn how to question and verify credibility of information in the media.

The pedagogical kit was developed within the ONAIR European project for media education, an initiative of the Sapienza University in Rome, and it benefits of the support of the Romanian Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports.

SHARP: "Teaching and Learning Digital Media" Pedagogical Kit

S.H.A.R.P European network introduces a new and FREE pedagogical resource for professionals interested in media education and new technologies.

The pedagogical kit "Teaching and Learning Digital Media" is intended for teachers, educators, trainers and others who want to improve their competences in the field of education about and through new media technologies. The central areas of inquiry are images (still imagery, films, videos) and web tool creation and application (platforms for information searches, for sharing, for producing media content, etc.).

The material is based on the educational experiences engendered during the S.H.A.R.P project by the different partners within their own contexts. These projects were conducted with different targets (e.g. students, teachers, adults, elderly people, minorities) and with particular topics (chosen from the main themes of Sharp: identity, memory, territory....) in mind.

The information presented in the kit sheds light on the main theme of the S.H.A.R.P (Sharing and RePresenting) from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The five theoretical chapters of the kit aim to provide help in answering the five main questions below. They can be used to plan and implement trainings "about and with media"; to work with ICT in the didactic field; to analyse and produce images and films with a school class, with university students or in adult education; and to facilitate social enquiries with given groups. The five questions are:

1. How can I plan a project?

2. How can I didacticise ICT in a project?

3. How can I analyse images, film and sound?

4. How can I produce images and films?

5. How can I collect significant social resources?

The kit also contains a series of practical examples on using new media for developing media skills. You can find a detailed description of nine workshops conducted by S.H.A.R.P partners from 7 EU countries: Italy, France, Portugal, Cyprus, Lithuania, Romania and Bulgaria.

ActiveWatch is the Romanian partner of the project and we contributed to the kit with Chapter 7: Visual Language and Representation of Reality.

The entire pedagogical kit is available for FREE in English and some chapters were translated into Romanian by local partner. Soon, the material will also be available in French.

Digital & Media Literacy Education - A Teacher’s Guide

This guide, in the form of a free PDF, has been produced as part of the project Virtual Stages Against Violence (VSAV), which can be framed within the conceptual and methodological horizon of media literacy. Aimed at teachers and educators, the guide constitutes the Toolkit of the project and contains five units with a series of educational activities about the topics and problems already dealt with in both the online game and the theatre plays. As the whole project does, these activities aim at developing an increased awareness among young people of both the risks and opportunities of digital media and online communication.
The Toolkit offers innovative and participatory methods to support, integrate and enrich the work carried out by educational institutions such as schools. The chosen education tools aim primarily to an active acquisition of skills and not just an acquisition of knowledge. The Toolkit is therefore a valuable complement to develop educational activities, raised more effective as being part of a creative, interactive and transversal learning experience.

----

Questa guida, nella forma di un PDF gratuito, è stata prodotta come parte del progetto Virtual Stages Against Violence (VSAV), che può essere inserito nella cornice concettuale e metodologica dell’educazione ai media. Diretta a insegnanti ed educatori, la guida costituisce il toolkit del progetto e contiene cinque unità con una serie di attività educative sugli argomenti e sui problemi già trattati nel campo del gioco online e delle commedie teatrali. Come anche il progetto stesso nel suo insieme, queste attività hanno la finalità di sviluppare una maggiore coscienza tra i giovani sia riguardo i rischi e le opportunità dei media digitali, sia riguardo la comunicazione online.
La guida offre innovativi metodi partecipativi per sostenere, integrare e arricchire il lavoro portato avanti dalle istituzioni scolastiche ed educative in generale. Gli strumenti educativi scelti hanno lo scopo primario di far acquisire attivamente delle capacità, non limitandosi quindi all’acquisizione di conoscenza. Per questo motivo la guida è un prezioso aiuto allo sviluppo di attività educative, rese anche più efficaci in quanto parte di un’esperienza di apprendimento trasversale e interattivo.
