12 international teams prepare for EYA in Graz

TAMK Media studies second year includes the "Networked Media Culture" course which again features collaborative international on-line work and a field trip.

EYA will open at Rathaus, Hauptplaz on Thursday evening

On Wednesday 17 media students will travel to the UNESCO City of Design and Styrian capital Graz in Austria for the European Youth Award Festival November 28-30.

The European Youth Award (EYA) engages young people in what the EU Digital Agenda wants to achieve till 2020: making digital technologies relevant to all citizens.
There has been tens of Google Hangout sessions of the 12 teams and the
professor team during the last weeks. On left Kirsten Kasch, EAL, opening

The students have some assignments - the most demanding of them is the preparation of the  Young Digital Academics event of the festival. The students work in 12 international teams to give feedback to the 12 winners of EYA. Each team presents a poster showing four assessments related to the projects.

The international team members come from Kiel University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Vic University  (Spain) and Lillebaelt Academy (EAL, Denmark).

The ArtMedia Blog will follow the EYA event closely.
