Transcript of Media Literacy in the '21st Century School'

Media Literacy in the
"21st Century School" the players Rhys Daunic, co-founder of The Media Spot, helps educators integrate media literacy concepts into their curricula through digital media production, and publishes related resources at themediaspot.org. Rhys also works with Dan and AUSSIE as an educational technology consultant, is on the editorial board of the Journal of Media Literacy Education, and was recently elected to the NAMLE Board of Directors. For the past decade, Daniel Storchan has taught, consulted, and collaborated with New York City schools to integrate technology and media literacy into traditional curricula. Currently, Dan is the Educational Technology Manager for the NYC based professional development organization, AUSSIE, and divides his time between growing his team, and school-based consultancy. http://themediaspot.org http://aussiepd.com The Media Spot builds media literacy by producing multimedia messages with youth and educators in their learning environments. AUSSIE is committed to raising student achievement by providing professional development that improves instructional practices. Our approach to professional development is based on a genuine partnership pursuing common goals. Rhys & Dan are also
buddies -- going back to
their days in the Media Studies
program at The New School --
who hang out, talk shop and
music, and play tennis and poker
together from time to time. The Obama administration has declared that it is their intention to bring our schools into the 21st century by helping them integrate technology into their curricula. To date, national standards for educational technology have been broad, allowing curriculum developers to address them according to their overall teaching and learning priorities, available technology resources, and level of teacher training. Simultaneously, new standards for literacy and social studies are increasingly mentioning the development of '21st century skills' among student outcomes. This environment provides ripe opportunities to bridge the core concepts of media literacy with the integration technology within the transformation of school curricula.

For the past decade Rhys and Dan have consulted and collaborated with New York City schools to integrate media literacy and technology into traditional curricula. This presentation will demonstrate how the schools we work with are transforming curricula and school culture through integrated curriculum mapping, whole-school planning, and units of study involving digital media production.

Participants will see how focused professional development has helped learning communities bridge technology and media literacy concepts with existing standards, and created interdisciplinary teachable moments to build capacity while preparing students to compete and thrive in their media-saturated world. online resources FIND THIS PRESENTATION, AGENDA & ALL RESOURCES ONLINE
