MEDEA Awards 2013 ! Don't forget !

MEDEA Awards 2013

Good morning. I am back from my wonderful summer break in Paris. It was so good to revisit Paris! I will talk about later.

Today, I am going to write about the 6th edition of MEDEA Awards 2013.

MEDEA Awards 2013 announced its call of entries some months ago. Now, the deadline to send your entries as participants is approaching, September 30, 2013.

As you know since 2009 I am participating at MEDEA Awards. So I am glad to promote such an interesting project that encourages innovation and good practices in the use of media in Education.

The deadline to receive participants' entries is 30 September 2013 and the winners will be announced at the MEDEA Awards Ceremony on 12 December 2013 taking place during the Media & Learning Conference (12-13 December) that will take place in Brussels

As an educator, I know how important it is to teachers be encouraged as I was in 2004 from Global Junior Challenge. It is a joy to participate with students at awards that captivate their attention and dignify their school work. It's a bit of fame that students appreciate!

"Entries are arriving at the MEDEA Awards Secretariat from practitioners and educational media producers from Europe and further afield and we are looking forward to a receiving a lot more before the 30 September deadline."

The aim of the MEDEA Awards 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.

Innovation and good practices are possible better with the new technologies always giving us fantastic resources. 

The 'screen-generation' is used to be online all the time. So, innovative educators understood the meaning of changing academic practices and go to digital. Mobile devices really pushed up for pedagogical applications.

Now video, audio are routine components of an open education (in and out school) based on educational environments that recognize and reflect the media-rich world in which our learners now liveEl Rap de la educación 2.0 is conclusive, don't you think?
