One can access this website on www.mediaeducation.org.mt. Mr. Edward Wright, the Head of Department for Media Education and PSD, introduced the seminar with a short speech in which he explained the importance of Media Education and proposed a way forward to promote it through a cross-curricular approach.

Mr.Clive Piscopo, teacher and actor, shared with the teachers some tips which can help them process short films effectively with their students in the classroom. Finally, Mr.Maurice Aquilina, IT teacher and web designer, launched and explained the educational affordances offered by the new website.
