Media By Example Programmes


Media By Example Certified Educators

Media By Example offers an online certification programme to help educators to embrace their role as digital role models and provide ideas on how to bring social media into the classroom. The Media By Example Certifified Educator programme recognises those who are exemplary digital leaders and those who want to work hard to become one. After completion of the course, participants will be rewarded with a certificate and digital badge and, more importantly, join an inspiring community of educators who are excellent examples to young people.


For Educators

Media By Example provides support, ideas and resources for educators. This includes information on how to get connected and how to best utilise your platform(s) of choice. We also help educators to bring social media into the classroom and use it to enhance learning, connect classrooms and scaffold digital leadership throughout a child’s education.

Media By Example Blog

The Media By Example blog provides a platform for digital leaders of all ages to share their efforts and inspiring projects. If you would like to contribute to the blog, please get in touch. Your projects do not need to save the world! If you are making a positive change through social media, big or small, you are a digital leader and we want to hear from you!

I love everything about Media By Example by Adam Hill because he and I share the same passion: to inspire the next generation of digital leaders and the teachers who mentor them. Adam brings his knowledge, expertise, and passion together in this much needed resource which changes the narrative around the role of social media in schools.
