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.

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.
