SignMedia is an innovative online learning resource that teaches elements of broadcast media industry-specific English through Sign Language video and interactive tasks, created by the international SignMedia project led by the University of Wolverhampton (UK). The video narrative and gameplay immerses learners into an alternative reality where learners start to work for the fictional Deaf production company Sunrise Media Productions as the production manager for the soap opera ‘Beautiful Days’.
MEDEA Awards incorporated in Media & Learning Conference
Since 2010 the MEDEA Awards are incorporated into the annual Media & Learning Conference taking place in November in Brussels. This conference is being organised by ATiT together with the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training, and the European Commission Directorate-General for Education and Culture.
The conference brings together practitioners and policy makers in a two-day event which will highlight the latest developments, services and digital and media competences in education and training. The MEDEA Awards Ceremony will take place during this conference. MEDEA finalists and other best practice entrants will be invited to contribute to the conference, putting on screenings and taking part in discussions. By participating in the conference, you will have the opportunity to meet people from the MEDEA Community in person including participants, judges, and finalists and get to know other MEDEA Entries and creative approaches to integrate media in education.
