During last week’s #mediaedchat Neil Martin (@nizlamb) mentioned that Media Education offers students numerous skills. I thought that this was a pertinent comment, especially considering the public’s perception (positive and negative) of the relevancy of media being taught to students. For a handout for prospective A Level students, some old students of mine came up with the following skills that they believed Media Education offered:
Therefore I would like to offer the topic of “what skills does Media Education offer and how can we celebrate these skills to change perception?”
Last week’s debut of #mediaedchat was a huge success and I am sure that this week’s will be of equal measure.
If you have any topic that you would like to discuss for future chats, please feel free to offer.
