MEAC - Media Education Across the Curriculum
MEAC is an initiative of a group of media educators from several European countries and based in Berlin. The website includes a range of resources that introduce uninitiated educators to media education. This includes introductory material such as ideas for using video cameras in the classroom, issues papers and information about professional development.
There is an associated blog that canvasses a range of issues and resources related to media education.
I am a media literacy educator at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. I teach in the Film and Media Curriculum units in the Bachelor of Education Degrees.
I'm involved with media education through Australian Teachers of Media, Qld and through syllabus and assessment implementation for Queensland Studies Authority committees.
My research is in the area of media education and identity formation, particularly in relation to participation with new media.
