» Mapping media to the curriculum St Andrews Lutheran College | ICT inquiry and exploration | Scoop.it
“Media maps are workflow storyboards for multimedia products. What do you want to create with your students today?”

This website clearly sets out how to develop a workflow with ICT to support the curriculum.
Simple, yet effective examples that can be applied to the classroom.

Wesley Fryer created the “Mapping Media to the Curriculum” website to accompany and support his eBook, “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing.”

Love it!

How do you discover the education news and research that matters to you? Probably by curating a list of the top thought leaders, local people you want to keep track of, and a smattering of other helpful folks.

But it’s not always easy to find the thought leaders from around the world you should be following. Whether you agree with what they’re saying, tweeting, or believing … their opinion matters to many. So rather than shutting out a particular point of view, consider adding some of these 50 education thought leaders curated by Online College to your stream to keep it lively and interesting!
