Fabulous blog with TONS of ideas for using a media cart/IWB in the classroom. I want to be a student in her class!
Wes Fryer is such an inspiration to me- not only the way he mentors teachers and students in the area of digital media, but also the way he is raising his own kids to be tech-geniuses! I have a budding techie daughter who wants her own web show thanks to Mr. Fryer's daughter's cooking videos. :)
I like this idea for having students evaluate the media they are using:
students, for example, can ask:
Who created or paid for the message?Why was it created?Who is the message designed to reach?How does the message capture the audience's attention? How might different people understand this message differently?What values or points of view are included or excluded and why? Where can I find out more to verify the information?What can I do with this information?
