September Edition of Media in Education Newsletter

September 8, 2009

This newsletter is aimed at people actively engaged in promoting excellence in the use of media in education and is linked to the annual MEDEA Awards. Each month it  includes news about the MEDEA competition and other events, projects, initiatives and developments related to how media can best be used in education.

This month it includes an interview with Sergio Lopez Figueroa (Creative Director of Big Bang Lab) about his collaborative interdisciplinary creative learning project with British secondary school pupils called "Unseen Voices". The output of this project includes a film created by students entirely by re-using archive film footage and photography and editing digitised clips on the history of the second World War, the Holocaust and Kindertransport (youth refugees in 1939).
