The Classroom is a short animation produced in 2010 by British GCSE Mandarin students (Year 11) at St Chad’s Catholic & Church of England High School, Runcorn, as part of the formal education programme “Projector Community Languages” of Cornerhouse, educational charity and art centre. This production enabled teenagers to learn Mandarin in a fun, interactive and engaging way, increase their understanding of Mandarin and Chinese culture through the use of film and practical creative workshops, and encouraged teachers to deliver more creative language sessions at school.
About the MEDEA2020 Project
MEDEA2020 Project logo
The MEDEA Organising Committee submitted a proposal to the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), Key Activity 4 (Dissemination and exploitation of results of the programme) which was approved in 2010. This proposal for a project entitled "MEDEA2020" builds on and further exploits the work of the MEDEA Awards. MEDEA2020 will expand the reach of the awards to include Italian, Spanish and Polish speaking practitioners. MEDEA2020 will also organise a series of workshops in educational media production in France, Italy, Spain, Poland and Ireland. Finally the new project will support the organisation of an annual large international conference on Media & Learning.
