MEDEAnet organised a webinar on 22 November 2012 with the two award winners of the MEDEA Awards 2012: Petros Michailidis (5th Primary school of Alexandroupolis, Greece) who presented the eTwinning project 'And the Oscar goes to ... ', and Catherine Loire (TICE, Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne University, France) who presented the video 'Quand la colère fait tomber les masques'. They described how they have successfully used media to enhance the learning process in their specific circumstances and the 25 participants were given an opportunity to exchange experiences and to ask questions during a moderated video discussion.

This webinar was the first of a webinar series MEDEAnet is organising with the MEDEA Awards 2012 finalists to celebrate the MEDEA Awards 2012 and share good practices on producing and using educational media with teachers and trainers as well as representatives from educational ministries and professional educational media producers interested in finding out more about innovative practices in media-enhanced education and training.

Presentations

Petros Michailidis (5th Primary school of Alexandroupolis, Greece)

Petros talked about the eTwinning project 'And the Oscar goes to ... ' for which he collaborated with Christelle Vouillot, Ecole Primaire de Rolampont in France and won the MEDEA Award for User-Generated Educational Media 2012.

Catherine Loire (TICE, Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne University, France)

Catherine presented the entry 'Quand la colère fait tomber les masques' by Université Paris 1 (France), which won the MEDEA Award for Professionally Produced Educational Media 2012.

This collaborative project incorporates the way storytelling is used in movies in everyday teaching practice for subjects such as language learning, mathematics, social and science studies, art, English, ICT, as well as for learning attitudes like how to handle bullying. In this project primary school pupils learned the skills and competences to create their own videos on these subjects in collaboration with pupils in another country. They learned to express themselves in other ways beside the traditional written and oral communication.
During his presentation, Petros also discussed the restrictions to publishing recordings of his pupils and how he dealt with this.

This 35-minute movie is about the gripping story of a social conflict between an employee and the new management of a family owned company while becoming a large multinational. The movie shows the events from different angles: human resource management, employees' rights, conflict management, business ethics and corporate law. And in that way it is an interesting case study for Master Students in these areas, and far more effective and involving than it ever could be on paper.
During her presentation, Catherine also gave participants an insight into the preparation and time frame for the entire production.
