MEDEAnet webinar “Videos for teaching”

On 21 March 2013 MEDEAnet organised a one hour webinar about integrating videos in teaching and how it influences the learning behaviour and learning effects, with a special focus on the recent trend 'Flipping the Classroom', in which students study the main content already at home (for example through videos) so that they can use what they’ve learned to realise concrete exercises & projects during the face-to-face class. This online event attracted 40 participants from 15 different countries, who were mainly teachers and trainers.

Our first speaker, Olaf de Groot (De Verdieping at stichting Kennisnet, the Netherlands) focused on flipping the classroom model, how this concept can be integrated in the daily lessons and how it effects the teaching and learning experiences in school. Our second speaker, Bram Faems (Jonatan Berkenboom and KlasCement, Belgium) presented a toolkit he developed for teachers to let students produce their own videos - a flipped flipping the classroom model so to speak, and he also discussed the students’ learning experiences when developing their own videos. After the presentations, participants could ask questions in an open discussion and are free to still ask questions in our online forum discussion on this webinar.

MEDEAnet webinar "Copyright Considerations for Educational Media Producers"

During this one hour webinar/live quiz 38 participants from 10 countries learned about the most important IPR and copyright rules you have to respect when you are developing your own media content for educational purposes. Participants were invited to test their knowledge of copyright and other IPR issues by means of an interactive question and answer session hosted by quizmaster Mathy Vanbuel (managing director of ATiT, Belgium and Secretary of MEDEA/Media & Learning Association) while main jury member Jeroen Verschakelen from ICRI - KULeuven, an expert in copyright and media law, provided the relevant legal and practical comments on copyright for educational media producers.

This webinar was aimed at educational media producers as well as teachers, educators and trainers interested in developing their own educational media. In a time where all sorts of different content seem to be available for free on the internet - from books, pictures, music, film to comprehensive scientific texts – it is important to know how you can use this content and also how you can protect content you have developed yourself which you also want to share via the web.

Before the end of 2012, these two experts are still available to answer questions about copyright and related cases in the online discussion in the Media & Learning Community of Practice.

MEDEAnet webinar “The Case for Media Education in the Classroom”

32 participants took part in this one-hour webinar to get an insight into different ways to integrate various media education schemes and approaches in the classroom in order to improve their students’ daily engagement with the media.

Nicoleta Fotiade from ActiveWatch in Bucharest, who is an expert in media education, gave a short introduction to various media education schemes and critical thinking methods in training settings that could help your students open their minds towards their critical interaction and use of information media. Using Nicoleta’s presentation as starting point, Marianna Vivitsou from the University of Helsinki in Finland discussed the examples provided from the pedagogic point of view and extrapolate them into a broader discussion based on her own media education experience. She shared her experience of a collaborative wiki project with Greek students in 2009-2010.

Following those two short presentations of around 20 minutes each, participants were given an opportunity to exchange experiences and to ask questions during a moderated online live discussion.
This webinar was aimed at teachers and trainers as well as representatives from educational ministries responsible for the development of the overall curriculum in different regions and countries.
