Share, share, share!

I am delighted to be able to say that the programme for this year’s OCR A Level Media Studies Conference has been announced. Following the article that I wrote for the Media Education Association journal (POV), myself and Steve Murray were asked by Pete Fraser if we would like to run an unconference style session within the conference. Of course, it only took us a few seconds to accept! The aim of the session is for people to come along and share good practice following the same format that TeachMeets use (7 min and 2 min presentations). A wiki will be set up very soon where attendees can sign up to notify Steve and myself about what they would like to share. Not only will you get an opportunity to spread the word of what amazing things take place in your classroom, but you will also be able to attend other exciting sessions. I have to say that the programme looks excellent, especially with Corin Hardy leading a session.

Hope to see you there and no doubt in the pub afterwards where the dialogue will continue!

  1. Upload your best Media lesson today and win £45,000 for you and your school

    Dear Andy,

    My name is Alex Ross and I work at Edcoms.

    I’d like to inform you about the relaunch of the O2 Learn Awards which aims to create Britain’s biggest classroom by connecting everyone to great teaching!

    To date, O2 Learn has over 1,000 curriculum focused lessons available and has delivered over 25,000 hours of teaching. They have also awarded over £300,000 to schools and teachers for teaching excellence.

    We’d love you to be involved in supporting the campaign, by spreading the message to your members or on a blog, to get students and teachers taking part in trying out our video resources. All teachers have the chance to win £2000 for themselves and their school department and everyone is rewarded for uploading each video.

    It’s a fun and innovative way to share good teaching and for students to enhance their revision. All the lessons are curriculum focused so everyone can find a video that’s relevant to their studies and all are quality assured by educational experts.

    To take part, all you have to do is upload your video lesson at
