This past term was quite exciting because for the first time I have stepped outside of my role as a media educator and took on a new role as a media education mentor. Although I truly missed teaching the students directly, working with teachers in two districts (Haida Gwaii and Prince Rupert) really helped to reinforce the difficulties of media education implementation; specifically authentic and integrated media education. New terms such as awakening (taken from Maxine Greene’s work) and subtle have found their way into the descriptions of my understanding of media education; a description and understanding that has currently morphed as I find myself meandering through Arts Education and Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy. This summer will, therefore, be spent trying to consolidate all of the life stories I encounter during my research term. And hopefully by the fall I will be able to share these stories and adventures in more detail.
