The call for entries to the MEDEA Awards 2014 was announced today. The aim of this annual competition is to encourage innovation and good practice in the use of media (audio, video, graphics and animation) in education. The awards also recognise and promote excellence in the production and pedagogical design of media-rich learning resources.
The workshop “Media in the classroom“ was organised on 17 March 2014 by CANON Cultural Unit in Antwerp, Belgium. The objective of the workshop was to introduce the participants to the process of creating a simple animation film, so that, in turn, they can implement this procedure during educational projects with secondary school students.
