MEDEAnet webinar The Case for Media Education in the Classroom
This webpage gathers the presentations and recording of the webinar 'The Case for Media Education in the Classroom' that took place on 18 October 2012. 32 participants took part in this one-hour webinar, discovering different ways to integrate various media education schemes and approaches in the classroom in order to improve their students’ daily engagement with the media.
Media education expert Nicoleta Fotiade (ActiveWatch, Romania) introduced various media education schemes and critical thinking methods in training settings that could help teachers open their students' minds towards their critical interaction and use of information media. Finally teacher Marianna Vivitsou (University of Helsinki in Finland) discussed her experience of bringing media education in the classroom through a collaborative wiki project Greek students undertook in 2009-2010.
This webinar was organised by the MEDEAnet project, which aims to promote media-based learning to organisations and practitioners and is related to the MEDEA Awards.
