Digital Media

My thanks to Mike O’Brien from Cisco for the link to an upcoming PBS documentary – Digital Media: New Learners of the 21st century.

PBS will screen the documentary this Sunday in the US but there are some excellent extended interviews with Dr Nichole Pinkard on re-defining student literacy and Dr John Seely Brown on the power of play and collaboration in the learning process.

Well worth a watch.

  1. Thank you for the link to Dr Seely Brown’s interview as this idea has been on my own personal agenda for some time. Inspired a new blog post for me.

  2. Great videos thank you Greg. I also enjoyed what Dianna Rhoten had to say about the need to look beyond the school to see the application of digital media for learning and to tap into that source for our students. She spoke about the use of digital media in museums, art galleries and libraries that happens as a matter of course to support learning while in schools we are still waiting for teachers to learn how to use the media before putting it in the hands of the kids. A great insight!
