Group – continues to grow but disconnect between its open
membership & SAAME's formal financial membership. Do we
need to create a new type of membership? Our database has
not been updated since 2016. Use the proposed Expo as
membership drive. Free or discounted for SAAME
members. Put a reminder on M.E.E.T. to renew
- SACE report – Successful 2018 in moving to all online
assessment and dispersed moderation. One of the first
subjects to do this. SACE Board does not provide P.D. for
teachers only Clarifying Forums. We have done this
previously. Also an issue with providing good examples from
SACE due to copyright issues.
- Arts Inspire – Continues from last year. Ed. Dept. is
funding some PD around the Arts and Gifgted & Talented
students. Planning is underway for a Conference Friday 14th
June in the pm and all day Saturday June 15th. SAAME to
provide a panelist (talented Media student) to talk about their
journey and two different workshops on the Saturday. Aim is
to help teachers identify talented students in their area and
devise appropriate learning strategies.
- Membership drive - refer to 3 above.
- Expo/conference – google form,
need weeks of advance notice: end of term 2, or beginning of term
3 may be better, early next year (seems to be the popular
choice), Fri+Sat combination (work and social), suitable venue –
Mercury Cinema and MRC have meeting rooms in same building.
Capri? Chelsea? Magill campus? Wilderness? Survey who will come,
set up a registry.
- Website – Need to have a new website running. Tim has
offered space on his server but we would need our own Domain
name. Could be asn.au and may cost ~$15/year. Other
Domains dearer. Investigate further.
- Logo – new logo ongoing
- S.M.A.R.T. - School Media Arts Resource Team concept
discussed. Idea has received positive response from
teachers, schools etc. For the cost of a TRT day. We
provide the school with an 'Authorised' teacher to work with
students and/ or teachers. Sharyn Schnell is happy to
promote this. Discuss at the AGM.
- World Teachers Day – SA Educators (CEASA) again hosted a
cocktail party Friday October 26th. We nominated Alex for
the Early Career Teacher Award and while he did not win, it was a
good opportunity to promote SAAME to the other Associations and
key decision/ policy makers.
- GMIL BtN Fake News Event – Held at ABC Adelaide on Oct. 24th
this was an opportunity for teachers to learn more about the Fake
News Series produced by BtN in Adelaide. Writer/ producer/
director Sarah Larsen discussed the process of producing the
series and a tour of Star Trek set used in the Bias episode
followed. This event was the only Australian one held as a
part of UNESCO's Global Media & Information Literacy Week and
was listed on their website. This also contains many useful
resources and SAAME should promote GMIL week more.
Subsequently Grant had a letter published in the Advertiser
publicising this in the context of a call by Michael Carr-Greg
for students to be issued 'digital licences'.
