Sally Raynolds presented this presentation around MEDEAnet and the best practice in the use of media to support learning during the scientific meeting 'Using media to support learning from pre-school through to University' on 31 May 2013 in Greece.

The Media & Learning Association is a new European not-for-profit association aimed at bringing together all those interested in the value and impact media can have on the learning process. It will provide a formal network of those already involved in the different MEDEA and Media & Learning initiatives including the annual conference and awards, the newsletter and the social media networks, the resources database and the network of workshop and webinars being run. This presentation provides information about various activities of the MEDEA Network and outlines the opportunities that already exist for collaboration.

  • 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.
