On teens, their phones & shifting communications landscapes (new from Pew) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Middle School Media Lit and Critical Thinking | Scoop.it

"This week Pew Research Center released Teens, Social Media & Technology Overview 2015, http://tinyurl.com/mrf2cxw ;

a report that should have relevance to all of us who work with young people.  Unlike Pew’s previous surveys, which involved representative samples of teens interview by phone, this one was conducted online.


These data are useful for us in deciding how we reach the young people we love and in understanding how they themselves manage their lives online."

Thousands of Free Media Files in the Public Domain Project - FRACTUS LEARNING | Middle School Media Lit and Critical Thinking | Scoop.it
It doesn’t take a lot of digging to find free media online, but more often than not, although these assets may be free to view and often download, copyright and licensing rules can put some pretty heavy restrictions on using them. This is where sites like the Public Domain Project can be of huge value, providing easy and searchable access to media files that are completely free of all known copyright restrictions. And that’s about as free as free gets on the modern web.
