In the Spotlight

How is media used to support teaching and learning in different parts of Europe?

The consortium of the European Commission supported project MEDEAnet (2012-2014) in which ATiT is the coordinator tries to get to the bottom of this question and investigates the situation in the MEDEAnet countries (Estonia, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania) or regions (Baden-Württemberg, Flanders, Upper Austria). The results of this investigation are published in a series of annual reports about “Charting Media and Learning in Europe”. This series aims to provide a general description of how media education and media literacy are dealt with in 7 different European regions and countries.The last of the annual 3 part MEDEAnet series has just been published.
