Interested in helping students become better readers, writers, and critical thinkers? We need to “play with media” to become more effective communicators and improve our media literacy skills as both learners and citizens. As you learn to play with digital text, images, audio and video, you will communicate more creatively and flexibly with a wider variety of options. Author and educator Wesley Fryer will inspire and empower you, as a creative person, to expand your personal senses of digital literacy and digital agency as a multimedia communicator! Learn more, order Wesley’s eBook, and access session resources on www.playingwithmedia.com.

  • ...when assigning a project, teachers look formastery of content and allow students to takeownership of how they present that content. Ateacher may ask students to demonstrate theirknowledge of photosynthesis, but rather thangive them a specific means of doing so, will allowthe students to use any available resources to doso. This not only gets the students innovatingmore as they navigate through this task, butmore importantly makes each student’sexperience unique and gives them ownershipover the product they produce. Some students 15 Marchmay make posters, some a voicethread, some a 2012powerpoint or prezi, but this should be noproblem for the educator as they are assessingon mastery learning objectives and not actualmeans of presenting them. http://theoffbeatmaestro.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/new-england-11-summit-2/Tuesday, July 24, 12
