When I first heard about Digital Learning Day, I started looking around to see how our teachers are using the technology as a day-to-day tool in the classroom. At first, I was just going to blog about what was going on in the building, but I decided to let the teachers share for themselves. So . . . I opened the question up to the teachers in my building. Here is a link to what they said. http://...
Digital Learning Day encourages everyone—teachers, librarians, school leaders, and parents—to participate, regardless of experience, in the exploration of digital teaching practices by starting a conversation, trying one new thing, and showcasing success. On Digital Is, many educators create resources that not only showcase, but also reflect on a range of examples of student work and reflections...
PowerPoint did the job and I collected a number of wonderful pieces over the years. As I worked with students, I found more uses for electronic media, including offering a space for voices that were silent in the classroom. One young man—a senior who was taking the class to complete an elective requirement—sat on the front row with his back to the majority of the students and usually spoke only...
Youth practice recording, interviewing, writing, rehearsing, editing, and presenting throughout media literacy programs, but what other skills do they practice and master in these programs that will help them in life? This resource examines the life skills that young producers gain through their participation in one of two Philadelphia-area media literacy programs. As a Stoneleigh Junior Fellow...
Educators offer instruction, support, guidance, opportunities, challenges, resources, but how do teaching and learning really occur in out-of-school media literacy education programs? This resource takes a deeper look at some key characteristics of pedagogy in two youth media programs in the Philadelphia area. As part of my Stoneleigh Junior Fellowship with Research for Action in 2010-2011, I...
Literacies are reading, writing, composing, creating, producing, changing, adapting, and evolving, but what do we know about how new and traditional literacies are already connected in the lives of today's youth? This resources focuses on important ways in which participation in two media literacy programs in Philadelphia helped youth to practice and improve traditional literacy skills. While...
Youth say they want respect, voice, value, safety, support, challenges, and a sense that they are making a contribution to something goodin the world, so what can we learn from young people about what motivates them to engage and learn new skills? Based on interviews with and observations of youth media producers in the Philadelphia area, this resource explores what motivates these youth to...
After our work at the NWP Annual Meeting in Orlando, the MAP Committee met in Davis, California in February 2011. Our goals were to review our overall assessment framework in light of feedback we've received and to reflect on the implications of design in tools like rubrics and graphic representations.  What do different designs signal about what is valued in an assessment context and how threads...
Here are a few student examples of using poster writing as a genre in my classroom. The student who created the Eminem piece had low motivation prior to the project.  This is one of the genres he produced using a web tool called Glogster (www.glogster.com). I was in awe of his effort when it came to embedding music in the Glog and how he actually wrote really informative information about Eminem...
One of the most rewarding experience my students have in my classroom is the use of Google Docs. Students thrive with the collaboration they can have with me and other students before they submit it to me for evaluation. Students always get a kick out of how more than one person can work together while in different places and they always like how I evaluate their papers right on the document...
