Search 80,0000 Media History Digital Library Artifacts ~ Free Technology for Teachers | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

"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...

Using media innovatively to teach history - when will such creative media be used to teach physics, mathematics and ... future thinking?
