Remix Culture 4 Learning

Published on

Students lose track of time as they spend hours navigating the web for material to create their stories and feel a sense of belonging through encouragement by their peers to post their stories on Facebook, illustrate them on Flickr, and share them with friends and the public at large through the multiple resources available on the web. This participation in new media environments is a way to be creative and innovative, but it is also new opportunities for our students to acquire and synthesize information in a meaningful way. Students today often remix original texts based on their own interests in order to create a new work that encapsulates their ideas and concerns about the issues that matter most to them.

In this conversation, Erin Reilly will highlight tools and strategies our students are using today to make their voices heard. You will learn how to adapt these tools and strategies to classroom activities that will encourage everyone in the classroom to participate in their own learning and be encouraged to transform digital media and learning into a collective, embracing, and transforming process of engagement that leaves teachers and students alike wanting more.
