In June 2007, the Images for the Future Consortium kicked off a pilot project for secondary education – pilot Media Education Platform as its working title.
From March to June 2008, two pilot groups (teachers and pupils) worked with a digital educational resources platform that offered the consortiumâ€™s content, supplemented with external content, with several processing tools.
Knowledgeland has evaluated the opportunities offered by the pilot and is advising on the further development of a Media Education Platform. The main question posed in the evaluation was: how can the Images for the Future Project deliver a useful contribution to secondary education learning?
