"“Show What You Know With Media” is a book series and website created by Dr. Wesley Fryer to serve as a menu, handbook, andmap for teacher-leaders and learners in the twenty-first century who seek to develop digital literacies as multimedia communicators and help students “show what they know with media.” * Mapping Media to the Curriculum (Volume I) explores the first six products in the framework: Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, Radio Shows, 5 Photo Stories, Visual Notetaking, and Narrated Slideshows / Screencasts. Videos in each chapter (hosted on YouTube) are directly linked for compatible eReaders and also linked via QR codes, so readers can optionally use a smartphone to view them."

This creative-commons licensed site is chock-full of ideas for how kids can show off what they know by CREATING it!  Very exciting.  Plus, I like that they called it "media."  Good idea.  Put the media in our own hands!

This makes so much sense to me--we have done a little of this with the cartoon and graph assignments. Thinking I should plan more.
