We introduce to you the new SHARP online pedagogic kit "Teaching and Learning Digital Media" intended mostly to professionals and educators interested in education techniques related to media and new technologies. 

The kit is intended particularly to teachers, educators and trainers eager to add up to their media and information skills and knowledge in order to use them together with their pupils. The central areas of inquiry are the study of image (still and moving images) and web tool creation and application (platforms for information searches, for sharing, for producing media content, etc.).

The material is based on the experience of media education training and workshops gathered during the S.H.A.R.P project by the different partners within their local contexts in Italy, France, Portugal, Cyprus, Lithuania, Romania and Bulgaria. The projects were conducted together with a varied range of people (children, pupils, teachers, elders and persons from socially disadvantaged groups) and focused on particular topics related to popular culture, identity, memory and territory.

The content of the kit sheds light on the main themes of the S.H.A.R.P network (Sharing and RePresenting) from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The five theoretical chapters of the kit can be used to plan and implement workshops and training "about and with media", to work with ICT in the didactic field, to analyse and produce images and films with a school class, with university students or in adult education, and to facilitate social enquiries with given groups. 

A detailed description of the nine workshops conducted by S.H.A.R.P partners is also available.

The entire pedagogical kit is available into English HERE.
