Search 80,0000 Media History Digital Library Artifacts ~ Free Technology for Teachers | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Richard Byrne

 

"The Media History Digital Library is a massive archive of documents about the history film, television, and radio. The library can now be searched and the documents viewed online through MHDL's new site called the Lantern. On Lantern you will find reviews and critiques of movies, books and playbills, many periodicals about the movie, television, and radio industries. Your search can be refined according to date, language, and publication type. You can also browse through collections curated by MHDL.

Applications for Education

"Two thoughts came to mind as I browsed through MHDL's Lantern. First, it's obviously an excellent resource for students studying the history and development of media. Second, through MHDL's Lantern you could find some good examples of how to write a critique. Your students could use those as models for writing their own critiques of movies or even of books."

What an amazing resource - and you can search within individual issues of film magazines - I shall be using this for lots of personal research on old films...

The Best Resources For Learning What Google+ Is All About

The Best Resources For Learning What Google+ Is All About | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"NOTE: Google Plus is now open to everyone, and they’ve announced huge improvements to the service at the same time. You can read more about their improvements here.

Against my better judgment , I took advantage of Lee Kolbert’s generous offer today of providing Google+ invites to her Twitter followers. I’m still trying to figure out how, and if, I’m going to find the time for another network (for those of you who don’t know, Google+ is Google’s brand-new effort to create a Facebook-like social network), but enough people whose judgment I respect seem to think it could be a valuable tool. So I’m going to spend some time checking it out.

In the process of beginning to do this exploring, I’ve found some useful resources that I thought I’d share here. Feel free to make other suggestions, too."

The Key to Media's Hidden Codes

Wow.  Somebody or some team worked very hard to create this effective video for helping students learn the importance of how to decode media messages.

Colors, camera angles and logos in the media can all prompt immediate associations with emotions, activities and memories.
