With the excitement of the second MEA/BFI: Media and Film Education Futures conference taking place tomorrow I’ve proposed on Twitter that it could be a good starting point to start a weekly #mediaedchat on Twitter. There are numerous weekly education chats taking place on Twitter these days, but there seems to be a gap where practitioners and enthusiasts of media education can get together to discuss relevant topics. Hopefully the idea will catch on and grow, which might have the potential to develop into local meetings of media teachers (as being advocated by the local MEA groups that are currently being set up around the country).
I thought that this post could be a starting point of highlighting the Twitter accounts of media teachers around the UK and internationally (please feel free to comment with other accounts that can be updated to the list).
The first #mediaedchat will take place on Tuesday 27 November at 8pm.
Here’s hoping that others feel that this is a good idea!
