Workshop info: The reality of global communication in the 21st Century is one of rapid and easy access to information, and misinformation, for many of us. If you want to know how to do something YouTube it, Google it, connect and discover. The vast networks of video channels, websites and podcasts will illuminate, entertain and distract you from the intention of your quest. How can students and teachers make the most of the opportunities that exist whilst avoiding the hazards? Do we really understand the risks and the potential of the technologically enabled environment? 
 
This session will explore the use of multimedia online for all those engaged in learning or teaching. It will uncover how creative educators can help to shape the future of the internet to best advantage, both in our own classrooms and beyond. Drawing on the work of the European project Video for All, the session will reveal how we can all become more effective users, creators and communicators of multimedia to contribute to the greater sustainability of education globally. This session will encourage you to get involved in connected practice, build your network and find tools which will transform your learning and teaching.
