Transmedia in Schools and Libraries: Thoughts and Strategies from Tyler Weaver | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

Peter Gutierrez:  "In the first part of my conversation with Tyler Weaver we discussed the many benefits of teaching with, and making, comics as well as the role of the school librarian when it comes to transmedia… here we get a bit more specific in terms of the issues involved."

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, February 11, 2013 5:54 AM

In part 2 of an excellent set of articles, Tyler Weaver puts the controversies surrounding video games and comics into historical context; and chooses the dawn of Marvel's Universe as "the most perfect encapsulation of a shared storyworld out there".

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

I am pretty sure as you introduce the idea to your students everyone will want to have a say in their next e-magazine. There is nothing much more rewarding to students than to have a proof of their hard work recognized in a publication of some sort.

 

Most of the tools cited here are easy to use and have user friendly interface and they will let you create your own e-magazine or newspaper in few simple steps. Yet I would recommend your discretion as you use them with your students.

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

Technology will define where online education goes next. All those millions of students clicking online can have their progress tracked, logged, studied, and probably influenced, too. Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.

No one will deny that the use of technology in education exploded over the last few years. The term technology is broad and when you look at how it is being used in and out of classrooms you see variations of the term.

Teaching Transmedia with Comics: A Conversation with Tyler Weaver

Teaching Transmedia with Comics: A Conversation with Tyler Weaver | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

Peter Gutierrez:  "As a reference work on media/transmedia, both aesthetically and historically, as a how-to for student media-makers, or simply on the professional development shelf, so that teachers and librarians can mine it for ideas, [Tyler Weaver’s book is] a text that can fill many needs at once. I was delighted, then, when the author agreed to talk to me about this fascinating topic" …

Inanimate Alice: a cross-platform educational project | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

Considered as a revolution in the “book publishing” industry, Inanimate Alice is a multiplatform immersive project. Often presented as transmedia, mostly thanks to its interactivity and multimedia use, Inanimate Alice is an interesting case of storytelling usage.
