Created in 2008 by BBC News, BBC News School Report gives 11-14 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience. Using lesson plans and materials from the BBC News School Report website, and with support from BBC staff, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters. Materials include lesson plans by BBC News reporter Huw Edwards and accompanying videos.
About the MEDEAnet project
From 2012 to 2014, the MEDEA Awards are supported by the Lifelong Programme of the European Commission through the MEDEAnet project.
This 3-year network project will help extend the reach of the MEDEA Awards and Media & Learning Conference and Community. The project will publish yearly country reports on the creation and sharing of knowledge about how media is used to support teaching and learning in different parts of Europe. Free workshops and webinars about media-based learning topics involving MEDEA Awards’ showcases will be organised in all partner countries Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, Germany, Greece and Romania.
