  • The name MEDEA is actually the acronym for “Moving images in EDucation European Awards”. It is an annual competition that is aimed at increasing the creative use of audio and video in education and as you can probably tell, with a very broad interpretation of the "Moving Images" part. We invite everyone to participate in the MEDEA Awards and this means that schools, universities, training providers but also students, teachers, audiovisual departments, for-profit organisations and companies can take part with animations, weblectures, documentaries, videoclips, games, Second Life applications, videoblogs, podcasts, videotutorials, ... In which we primarily are searching for creative and meaningful use of media. It has to have and give an added value to the learning taking place. Since January 2010 we also make the distinction between professional and non-professional producers and the best entry of each category will be awarded with a prize.

  • Working definition: Media wisdom is the totality of knowledge, skills and attitudes with which citizens can move consciously & critically in a complex, changing and mediatised world. It is the capacity for an active and creative media use focused on societal participation.   It is not only about practical skills such as ict-skills, learning abilities and smooth handling of and creative use of different media, but also about media consciousness , insight in the mechanisms of commercial communication and the media industry, critical information- and strategic skills and responsible and safe use of media.   When we talk about media, it is both the traditional media (television, radio, press), and the ‘new media’ (internet applications, sms) and the capacity for an everyday, informal and creative media use that is (implicitly or explicitly) aimed at participation in the cultural-societal sphere (readers letters, youtube, chatrooms, blogs, webcam, etc.).
