  • December 2007: Launch of the MEDEA Awards The organisation of the MEDEA Awards consists of partners across Europe, who believe in the benefits and feel a certain need of the general integration of video and media in education and training. Our pedagogical vision is that “ only when video and audio are routine components of education and online learning, that we will have an educational environment that reflects the media-rich world in which our learners now live. ”
  • 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 edcuation 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.
  • 1. Pedagogical quality : quality of didactics and of communication. Is there a clear learning objective? Is it likely that the material will result in good learning? 2. Use of media : the choice and selection of the type of media, the advantages of the media selected. Is the type of media chosen used appropriately and in an exemplary fashion? 3. Aesthetic quality : attractiveness of materials. Is the style and design consistent and appropriate for the target users? Is the entry appealing and pleasing to look at and to use? 4. Usability : the intuitiveness of the material. Is it easy to use the application? Is there support, a set of guidelines, the possibility of feedback or help? 5. Technical quality : are there possible flaws in the system and/or compatibility issues? Is it necessary to have unrealistic or advanced technical knowledge to be able to use the system, etc.
  • In 2008, the first year of the MEDEA Awards, we already received 121 entries from 25 countries of which the jury chose 2 award winners out of 6 finalists. These were Court Introduction by the Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority in Sweden, and introduction into the practical proceedings of court cases and Anti-Anti, a multimedial cluedo game created by students of the Sint-Lievenscollege Ghent in Belgium.
  • In 2009 we received 254 online entries from 38 countries of which 8 finalists were invited to the Awards Ceremony where 4 award winners were announced: the overall winner Know IT All for Primary Schools by Childnet International, which developed an animation and teacher guide on internet safety. Furthermore Eyes on the Skies by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) received the Special Jury Award, for its book and 1-hour movie about the invention of the telescope by Galileo and what insights and knowledge that invention has brought us.
  • We also awarded a primary school in Italy with the European Collaboration Award for the video and photo posts they published on the blog Traditions Across Europe, on which they collaborated with a partner school. The Creativity and Innovation Award 2009 was won by a primary school in Turkey for the Daisy and Drago animation that was drawn and narrated by 6-year old pupils.

  • In 2008 5 last year students created under supervision of 1 teacher, multimedial Cluedo game that was played in real life by 200 fellow students on the topic of bullying and extortion as it was their aim to raise awareness on useless violence. The students wrote documented a fictional murder of a bully and in a 50-minute immersive, 200 of their fellow students had to find out who the murderer was. There are 4 suspects as you can see on the slide.
  • A campagne was set up with flyers to attract the students’ attention, who had to download mp3s in advance. These mp3s contained audio recordings of important events leading up to the murder. By downloading the mp3s, the students already received some clues.
  • On the day of the real-life game, the students had to look for visual clues in 4 different locations in the school. On each location one of the suspects played a muted video, that can be linked to the MP3s as the MP3s are in fact the audio tracks of the video recordings. Students thus had to link audio with video and interpret the clues.
  • From this interview with the supervising teacher, we learn that the students developed this project practically entirely by themselves as an "Advertisement" project for a non-profit goal and by using modern technologies in an innovative manner. They used their own video cameras and created this game. The teacher also mentions that after Anti-Anti was chosen as a finalist and definitely after winning the MEDEA Special Jury Award, there was a lot of talk in the school on media in education and particularly on the fact that the school didn't own any video recording materials. Thanks to the sponsored prizes they received from MEDEA, 3 Macs and Adobe software, MEDEA hopes to have brought a difference in that matter.
  • SciCast is an online repository that shares videos, sent in by children and adults, related to Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM) and awards the best videos in the annual SciCast Film Awards. It is aimed at young people from 8 years old up - or even younger if they are ready to make a film, but also invites teachers and professional scientists to send in movies.
  • De bedoeling is jongeren warm te maken voor wetenschappen en technologie, die vaak als zeer moeilijke vakken ervaren worden. Maar met leuke korte verklarende filmpjes en experimenten wordt een moeilijk onderwerp plotseling veel makkelijker te begrijpen! Zo werd er zelfs een rapliedje gemaakt over radioactiviteit gemaakt. En zo leren jongeren elkaar moeilijke begrippen op een makkelijke manier en wordt wetenschappen leuk. SciCast ziet het maken van dergelijke kortfilms ook als deel van een wetenschapsles, mediastudies, thuis of in een wetenschapsclub.
  • Video submitters and teachers can also access additional information such as a handbook about shooting a video, write-ups of the activities, experiments and demonstrations. The best clips are awarded in the annual SciCast Film Awards .
