The project "SH.A.R.P - A platform for SHAring and Re-Presenting” is promoted by the University of Pavia (Communication and Psychology Departments) and CEM (Media Education Centre) together with institutions from seven European countries. One of the main objectives is to realize a web-platform to edit shared audio and video products on-line (video representations).
We’ll start with a detailed research on cooperative devices and the mechanism related to the self reproduction and self narration dynamics. Each Sharp’s member will identify in his context people at risk of social or digital marginalization and people who have important but difficult relationships with their area (a great focus is on school reality and “digital natives” generation, who don’t show neither an appropriate digital awareness nor a suitable self-representation).
People identified will be trained to visual communication in a learning-by-doing approach, through their own community video narration, related to their area. Thus, mediators and social operators will guarantee a direct training and will disseminate their competences.
Documentaries will be gathered in the web platform, which represents not only a great database but also a strong device used to modify and mix together videos. In this way, we are realizing new and common area representations and are contributing to create new dynamics to the self construction and to the public and collective construction as well.

What does the future hold for media-enhanced learning? What is the best way to boost skills and competences in media production? What role do media literacy and wisdom play in creating innovative, inclusive, future-proof education? These and other topics will be discussed at the Media & Learning Conference, to be held on November 14 and 15 in Brussels. The full programme is now available online, read on for more on speakers and special features!
The programme for the Media & Learning Conference is now available online, and details the variety of speakers, topics, and special features of the event, to be held in Brussels on November 14 and 15. Three main themes will be explored over the course of two content-rich, full days, which include the future of media-enhanced learning, how to boost skills in media production, and uncovering the importance of media literacy with regards to creating innovative and future-proof education.
Several renowned keynote speakers will touch on these global concepts, but the event also aims to bring these topics down to earth by showcasing specific examples of ideas that work. An online news website run by children living in areas of social disadvantage in Ireland is one example; hands-on-film-making courses for young people is another one. Additionally, the increasingly popular approach to digital storytelling, Transmedia, and the value and impact of three-dimensional learning content will also share some of the spotlight.
The MEDEA Awards Ceremony, which participants are welcome to join, will run alongside the conference.
Registration is now open and includes an opportunity to attend for free by taking advantage of the Media & Learning recommendation offer: get a refund on your registration fee by having your friends and colleagues register with your registration code – if 4 or more do this, you attend for free!
Die fraMediale15´ ist eine Medienmesse und Fachtagung und findet anderthalbjährlich an der Fachhochschule Frankfurt am Main statt. Unter dem Motto "digitale Medien in Bildungseinrichtungen" stellt die fraMediale eine Plattform für den Austausch zu medienpädagogischer Forschung und schulischer/universitärer Medienbildung bereit und soll dadurch zur sinnvollen Integration digitaler Medien beitragen.
Die Veranstaltung richtet sich an Lehrer/innen, Schulleitungen und weitere Personen, die sich für den Einsatz digitaler Medien in Bildungseinrichtungen interessieren. Veranstaltet wird sie vom fraLine-Team des FTzM. fraLine ist ein Kooperationsprojekt der Stadt Frankfurt und der Fachhochschule Frankfurt am Main.

The deadline for MEDEA entry submissions is fast approaching, but there's time yet for participants to send in their videos, right up until September 17.
The MEDEA Awards aim 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.
In recent years there has been remarkable interest in the creation and use of digital video and audio in education, boosted by the increasing impact of multimedia and video based websites and applications on the internet and mobile devices. The pedagogical vision is clear: it is 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.
Entries need to be submitted via the online submission form and sent to arrive at the MEDEA Secretariat via post, e-mail or fax before the closing date: 17 September 2012 (midnight). All finalists will be notified in the beginning of November and will be invited to take part in the awards ceremony taking place during the Media & Learning Conference 2012, where the final winners will be announced.

The recording and presentations by Steven Ronsijn (Sint-Lievenscollege in Ghent, Belgium) and Jolanta Galecka (Young Digital Planet, Poland) are now freely available online thanks to the MEDEAnet project.
The MEDEAnet consortium organised a one-hour webinar "How to integrate gaming in the classroom" on 25 June 2012, in which Steven Ronsijn (Sint-Lievenscollege in Ghent, Belgium) described how he integrates the game Third World Farmer in his geography classes and outlined what he considers to be the 4 success factors that teachers should take into account when it comes to game-based learning. Jolanta Galecka (Young Digital Planet, Poland) showed several interesting games and the evolution YDP has undergone in its design process based on feedback provided by children playing the games.
You can watch a recording of this webinar with accompanying presentations online: http://www.medeanet.eu/event/medeanet-webinar-how-integrate-gaming-classroom-25-june-2012-4pm-cet.
This webinar and associated resources are freely available thanks to the MEDEAnet project which aims to promote media-based learning to organisations and practitioners through local training and networking events, online resources and knowledge sharing.

Previous winners and highly recommended entries included Steven Ronsijn’s Anti-Anti and YDP’s EduSensus.
Addressing Cyber Security in schools should foster critical digital literacy, such that children can become empowered to make informed decisions about how they choose to use and share information online. eLearning Papers Nº 28 gives answers to questions such as: What constitutes risk when working with digital media? Or where does the potential reside to engage young people in safe Internet use?
The rapidity with which children and young people are gaining access to online, convergent, mobile and networked media is unprecedented in the history of technological innovation. There are two main foci for e–security research that associated with protecting information both strategic and economic and that protecting people particularly the young. While these are overlapping concerns it is the latter that this special issue addresses.
eLearning Papers 28 presents 8 articles arranged in the two sections, In-depth and From the field. The four In-depth articles give a view of the present discussions surrounding how students can be encouraged to engage in safe Internet use. The fourth From the field articles present examples of best practice scenarios.
