"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."

Interesting description of the Media History Digital Library, which is a massive archive of documents about various forms of media including film, television and radio. This would be a great resource for those wanted to research pop culture or media history.  

The archive site is called the latern and has many documents regarding media pieces including critiques and and evaluations. Could be a good tool for students to pick up pointers on how to compose a critique or media studies.

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.

Some great idea to help with improving news and decreasing information overlad while improving search.  Can they get the rest of the web to buy in?
