Lisa Guernsey - Takeaways

  1. 1. May 16 and 17, 2011 | USC School of Cinematic Arts C o n c u r r e n t P a n e Panel 1: Storytelling, interactivity, engagement We should strive to demonstrate to teachers how digital media can be used to increase efficiency because teachers are hard-pressed for time. When you have the opportunity to provide a web-based teaching tool for free (as with world wide telescope), it can scale up fast and globally. Allow older kids to create content for younger kids. Don't talk to teachers as though in a void, but in the community context in which they work. Honor and respect teachers for what they know about learning. We can use transmedia tools to preserve social history in new ways.
  2. 2. May 16 and 17, 2011 | USC School of Cinematic Arts C o n c u r r e n t P a n e Panel 3: Expanded learning: activity & production, mobile & apps Educational standards: What is educational? How do we define educational/ how do we measure? Evaluation: How do we know that kids are actually learning from programs/media? How do we enable good research and proper evaluation when we know it’s not always feasible? Moderation: How do we make sure digital spaces are safe for kids? What is the role of parents?
  3. 3. May 16 and 17, 2011 | USC School of Cinematic Arts C o n c u r r e n t P a n e Panel 4: Infrastructure for Supporting Digital Media and Learning Create our own infrastructure of resources, data across industries (entertainment & education) Break down the barriers (not just the physical barriers) that push & pull our respective industries: COLLABORATE What do we do now - what specific actions can we (Leadership Forum) take to move the work forward? (Let's not wait until the next Forum!!)
  4. 4. May 16 and 17, 2011 | USC School of Cinematic Arts C o n c u r r e n t P a n e Panel 5: Targeted Public Engagement Campaigns A Public awareness campaign is a must. One of the major efforts we can undertake to get us (the whole country) “rowing in the same direction.” This topic warrants a longer, bigger session! “The message” that addresses the literacy crises: Find a way to make 4h grade crisis into a national health and safety issue. Deal with it the way we dealt with seatbelts, the H1N1 campaign, designated driver campaign, etc. Plan the campaign so that it has “multiple touches” e.g. use media, use print, use events, hand- outs at movies, schools, libraries, web sites, news releases. And one GIVEAWAY: Engage Hollywood (both film and TV) by asking for permission to use popular characters in campaigns (e.g. Russell from Up, Wall-E, Tron, SpongeBob. Praise the owners of these characters for doing well by doing good.
  5. 5. May 16 and 17, 2011 | USC School of Cinematic Arts C o n c u r r e n t P a n e Panel 6: Promoting “Educational” Standards Need increased emphasis on early childhood and digital literacy early in life. Need to raise the standards of what we consider to be learning and what we expect from our media. Need to move past traditional 3 Rs of learning/assessment: 4th R should be relationships at home, school, within community.
