Short lists:

The project team at the Learning from Screens presentationsIn 2008, Making group-work work was short listed for the Learning on screen awards. The resource joined an impressive range of nominees including the BBC and Channel 4.

The resource received positive and encouraging feedback from the panel of judges:

"Making group-work work was regarded a very solid piece of work, a site with clear navigation instructions that worked! The learning objectives are clearly defined and salient questions prompt thought from the user.

It's a testimony to this type of work that, this year, the Jurors determined that their Special Jury category would celebrate productions that have a strong impact on their audience but which were made with a limited budget."
