#dl09- New media literacies learning library

New media literacies is a cool organization that promotes the teaching of new media skills such as creating mash-ups, user response content and media. For example I could use Little Big Planet to create a game around the plot devices for Beowulf 🙂

This project began in 2005 with a grant from the MacArthur Foundation under “Digital Media and Learning Initiative”

Their site is a resource for K-12 educators that includes the following:

  • Research to support techniques used
  • Learning Library (items in the library include pieces, videos, examples, presentations, techniques contributed by actual teachers and students)
  • Strategy Guidelines
  • You can add the media library to your group

How does this apply to us?

This is user created content that has a tagging and search system in place. It might be helpful to learn from them how the put this together? How they govern it.

This group is leveraging social networks to promote shared learning.
