Our friends at SYN Media kicked off their Media Learning Week on Monday.
Media Learning Week is program of professional development events for media teachers, and teachers using media.
Tuesday's forum at the State Library introduced us to three leaders in the VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) media field, the most quotable of whom was Josie Atkinson from Kangan Institute
Josie is doing fine work with "scallywags" out in Broadmeadows, using radio as a tool for education, personal development, and cultural renewal.
Adam Whitbread from SKYS and Jon Staley from Youthworx presented their models for media training and showed some of the fruits of their programs - including work from one student, Chris Musgrave, whose work just tickles our fancy. You can see Chris's excellent mini doco 'My Glasses' here.
