MEDEA Awards 2011
Launched in November 2007, the annual MEDEA Awards are designed to encourage innovation and good practice in the use of media in education. The awards also recognise and promote excellence in the production and pedagogical design of media-rich learning resources, recognising and rewarding different aspects of the field of media in education and its importance in a European context.
This year 9 outstanding entries were selected from around Europe including “Changing Lives” by Drogheda Special Olympics Club
The overall winner will be announced during the MEDEA Awards Ceremony which takes place on Thursday 24th November during the Media & Learning Conference 2011 in Brussels.
This year the competition attracted 115 entries from 28 countries. Those entering could choose between submitting their entry as a production made by a professional company or semi-professional production unit or as one made by individual teachers, students, learners, parents, professors, supporting staff or institutions in all educational levels or training centres. This means that this year there will be two main prizes, one for each category and each winner will receive a MEDEA Statuette.
