Each summer, the Digital Media and Learning (DML) Research Hub (dmlcentral.net) invites a select group of advanced graduate students and postdoctoral scholars conducting research in the field of Digital Media and Learning to discuss their research and build relationships with other key researchers. During the summer of 2011, Justin Reich and Lisa Schwartz were two fellows at the DML Research Associates Summer Institute. With the DML Conference just around the corner, I thought you might enjoy a glimpse into the exciting conversations and inquiries the DML Research Hub is advancing.


In the first video, Justin Reich describes some of his research into how social media are used in K-12 classroom settings. Reich, a former social studies teacher, is a fifth-year doctoral student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. You can learn more about him at his blog, EdTechResearcher.
