EU-Media/EDUMEDIA 2006-2007
Comenius-EduMedia Awards 2006

On 22. of June 2006 the Comenius-EduMedia Awards and the Erasmus- EduMedia Awards were granted in the health resort centre of St. Stephan. The award event of the GPI, Gesellschaft für Pädagogik und Information e.V., and the ESEC, European Society for Education and Communication e.V., was a meeting point for the international educational media branch.The GPI beinng a scientific society for multi media, educational technology and media didactics by means of the foundation Comenius-EduMedia Awards and Erasmus- EduMedia Awards promotes multimedia products as well as Euro-political educational media which are of a particular educational, contentual and design value. In 2006 these awards celebrated their 11th annual jublilee.

In 2006 the Comenius awards were granted in cooperation with the ESEC, European Society for Education and Communication e.V., in the form of the two traditional formats EduMedia and EuroMedia. The Gesellschaft für Pädagogik und Information e.V. granted the Comenius-EduMedia Awards and the European Society for Education and Communication e.V granted the Erasmus-EduMedia Awards.

This is why all the awards and honorary prizes did not go with a financial grant fort he winners. The value of the awards is based on the fact that the awarded projects receive international recognition. These awards are highly valued by experts, applicants and winners as a highly competent mediation between different projects and project groups.

The winners of the media contests were chosen by means of didactic and scientific evaluation in a neutral evaluation process.

In a two-tier award-granting process the decision on exemplary didactical multi media products was taken.

The decisions in the Erasmus- EduMedia Award for excellent Euro-cultural educational media were taken by an internationall staffed jury.

The Comenius-EduMedia Awards were granted for excellent IT-based educational media in all educational spheres, fields of application and educational fields which are accessible as CD-rom, DVD or in the net e.g. as a hybrid offer, as an author system as a network or a platform for education.

Erasmus- EduMedia Awards were granted for media programs, media products or media productions (electronic media, net media) who have Euroa as a topic concerning its goals, perspectives, problems and challenges.

The number of appications for the Comenius-EduMedia Awards and the Erasmus- EduMedia Awards has compared to the beginnings of the awarding process in 1995 been multiplied and become popular all over Europe. The participating countries in 2006 were Germany, Greece, Croatia, Moldavia, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, Czechia, Hungary, Cyprus.

169 Comenius-EduMedia-Awards and Erasmus-EuroMedia-Awards could be granted in 2006 on mulitmedia products concerning education and culture. The Comenius-EduMedia Seal, which attests the authors and publishers as well as their products an excellent didactic and media quality, was granted to 109 winners. The Comenius-EduMedia-Special Award could be granted five times and the Comenius-EduMedia Promotion Award could only be given to one winner. In 2006 the Comenius-EduMedia Medals for excellent multi media products which have become very popular with publishers and producers could be granted by the jury 29 times.

Erasmus-EuroMedia-Awards for Euro-political educational media could be given to institutions from 10 countries in 2006. The Erasmus-EuroMedia-Medals could be granted 8 times, the Erasmus-EuroMedia Seal 15 times and the Erasmus-EuroMedia Special Prize twice. The great response with which the media contests met in Europe underlines the importance which E-Learning and B-Education have been receiving in the various educational institutionss and for life-long learning. In 2006 the trend of an increase in interactive and mulit media learning systems could be discerned and as far as content was concerned, an expansion in multi media products for ethical, contemporary and Euro-cultural education could also be seen. The chairman of the board of the GPI and the 1. president of the ESEC, professor Dr: Dr. Gerhard E. Ortner and the chairman of the Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Bildung und Kommunikation e.V. and vice-president of the ESEC, professor Dr. Thomas A. Bauer, distributed the awards.
