50 Activities To Promote Digital Media Literacy In Students Literacy is changing–not at its core necessarily, but certainly at its edges as it expands to include new kinds of “reading.” Digital media is quickly replacing traditional media forms as those most accessible to most 21st century learners. The impact of this change is extraordinarily broad, but for now we’ll narrow it down to changes in how learners respond to the media they consume. The most fundamental pattern of formal academia is to read something and then write about it. Some of these tasks will look familiar, especially to English teachers. Also, I know that medium is the singular form and media the plural, but to me the connotation of the word medium hints at the form (e.g., film, text, video), whereas the media seems more apt to refer to a specific example of a media form (Schindler’s List, The Odyssey, Charlie Bit Me).

Resources | Making Better Video Page CXVI are offering all their music for free You may have noticed that I like the music of Page CXVI. First, it’s cool. Their songs have a great feel, and there is enough variety to keep them interesting without getting boring. Second, they often go really well with video, especially since they have made a lot of their music available as instrumental tracks (you may have noticed how I have used their tracks in my films Blindness and Centre). Third, they’ve got some solid lyrics, and I love their reworking of hymns. So you can understand how I couldn’t help posting about them again when they announced that this month they are offering ALL their music for FREE DOWNLOAD. They’ve also done some nice performance videos for some of their songs. *Edit 2 Aug 2013 – Page CXVI now do most of their music licensing through THE MUSIC BED, which can cost some money. Sites for downloading royalty-free images Like Video and Music, Images come under copyright. Bottom line – there’s lots out there.
