Search 80,0000 Media History Digital Library Artifacts ~ Free Technology for Teachers | Dighistory | 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."

Without words... excellent applications for education in particular for students of history and development of media.

Bryan R. D.'s curator insight, April 21, 2017 6:10 PM
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.

Emma Stutzman's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:03 PM

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.
