Learning Through Digital Media
Posted by Kathleen Fitzpatrick | Filed under announcement
MediaCommons Press is proud to host the open review of essays proposed for inclusion in the collection, Learning Through Digital Media. As editor Trebor Scholz describes it,
The simple yet far-reaching ambition of this collection of essays is to discover how to use digital media for learning on campus and off. It offers a rich selection of reflections on social practices, methodologies, and hands-on assignments by leading educators who acknowledge the opportunities created by the confluence of mobile technologies, the World Wide Web, film, video games, TV, comics, and software while also calling attention to recurring challenges. The authors in this publication ask how tools and services that are part of the contemporary media landscape can be used to create situations in which all learners actively engage each other and the teacher to become more proficient and productive, to think in more complex ways, gain better judgment, become more principled and curious, and lead distinctive and productive lives.
Please join in the discussion of these engaging and important essays!
