The MEDEA2020 project
The MEDEA2020 project responds to a growing pressure to provide more relevant and attractive learning opportunities to citizens through the use of ICT in general and media in particular and addresses a problem whereby there are an increasing number of ‘pockets’ of expertise, however accessing these is not always easy. Therefore it will exploit existing know-how and experience in the use of media in education and training in Europe.
Starting from the experience of the MEDEA Awards competition, the unique European forum where excellent examples of media-based learning resources are rewarded and highlighted with the aim of promoting good practice, MEDEA2020 extended the network of countries involved started from the basis of the MEDEA:EU project. Furthermore the network will be strengthened by the MEDEANET project.
