Just a quick note for all those who attended Beyond the Rights Clearance Culture: New Ways to Think about Copyright and Film, the presentation I gave with Professor Brian Fitzgerald at the Byron Bay Film Festival this week (or anyone else interested) – the slides are now up on Slideshare.
We just found out that the Budd:e e-security education package published by the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy won the Best Children’s interactive media and digital content category at 2010 AIMIA Awards.
The Budd:e package, which incorporates activity-based modules for primary and secondary school students was developed by Roar Film. Plus, all materials in the package are made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 2.5 Australia licence. That includes video footage of ccAustralia’s own Elliott Bledsoe.
Here’s what the judges had to say about it:
“Address the ever increasing importance of internet awareness and etiquette through a fun, interactive and stimulating way. Targets its audience well and conveys key messages and provides learning in an effect but indirect way.”
Congratulations to Roar and to DCBDE on the win, and for releasing the package under CC!
