Do you need BTEC Media resources?

Discussion in 'Media studies' started by KarrieL, Mar 13, 2007.

  1. If so what would you like?

    I am a Media technician and have helped our media department find ways of teaching the practical BTEC courses. I am considering putting together resource books with schemes of work we have devised and teaching notes pointing out the traps to avoid and such things for the BTEC Media modules. From my experience media is generally being taught by very keen and eager and lovely English teachers who have limited practical experience. (this is not always the case but media specialists are still quite rare, as are technicians I believe.)

    I have a quite a bit of media experience (I am still young!) and have been working with kids since I was one!

    Would anyone find this useful and if so what would you like it to include? How to cover all the content and grading criteria would obviously be included. Would advise on equipment and software be useful, and advise on what to consider when starting up the course?

    I have only just started to seriously consider this after our HoD joked I should publish the Photoshop instruction worksheets I made. You'll need to give me time.

    We have had to write almost everything from scratch and it has been very difficult. Please do let me know if you would be interested in this.

  3. yes please. Don't know what i want. Going to start Btec in Sept 2008- sounds brill for an ignoramus like me. Basically need an idiot's guide - what works and what to avoid etc etc.
     
  4. That would be great, I think it would be of use to quite a few of us.
     
  5. KarrieL - I'd be extremely interested in discussing a joint venture on this excellent idea. Would you be interested?

    Kind regards, Richard

  6. This would be fab for trainees like me! Sounds ideal!
     
  7. Yes please. Looking at posts at colleges and BTEC keeps cropping up.
     
  8. I think it's a fantastic idea. I have been the lone wolf teaching btec media in my school since last sept. I have found it very challenging especially since I have no real expertise.

  9. Desperately needed! I'm an English teacher (reluctantly) teaching BTEC Media and finding it very hard!

     
  10. Sounds like this is definately needed. I'll get on to it and see what I can come up with.

    If anyone does need any specific advice please do e-mail me karenlatto@hotmail.co.uk
     
  11. That would be amazing - i too am a young teacher and will be starting it in Sept.

    I'm going to start teaching OCR Level 3 in September and although it's different I'd love any advice/worksheet I can get on anything practical. Going to throw myself into learning my way around a Mac over the summer!

  13. Hi, is it still possible to get resources for Btec Media, i have just seen the post on the forum...i am starting in sept 2007, just writing the SOW at the moment, but can always do with more guidance....
     
  14. I haven't been ignoring everyone I promise. I've been filming a short film so everything went on hold for a month or so.

    I'll try and e-mail people this week with some stuff I have.

    Thanks for the interest and bare with me, I'm starting a GTP in september so it could take a while.

  15. Karrie,
    I would really appreciate your opinion on the BTEC as I am considering it for post 16 Sep 2008. I have some v low ability students who just cant cope with A Level standard essays. IYHO would BTEC be the way forward?
    My email is stma@fsmail.net for any advice/examples/stuff that may help me make my decision
    Regards
