European Schoolnet is delighted to have participated in the Media and Learning Conference 2016. We would like to kindly thank everyone who visited our stand to learn more about our work, projects and publications.

The purpose of this annual event, which took place on 10–11 March at the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training in Brussels, was to identify policies and initiatives that promote digital and media competence at all levels of education and training, as well as to promote best practice in the take up and application of media in education and training. It was aimed at practitioners, content creators, service providers and policy makers.
Highlights on this year's agenda included the urgency of embedding digital and media literacy skills among the European workforce and how best to convince stakeholders about the importance of embedding digital and media skills among learning professionals and learners at all levels of education and training.
There were also practical learning opportunities showing how to apply all types of media in education and training through workshops and hands-on training sessions; information sessions describing many different initiatives and developments linked to this field supported by European and national programmes; and sessions linked to the MEDEA Awards 2016: a competition now in its eighth year that recognises and rewards excellence in this field. These sessions featured winners and finalists from the past and current competitions.
