Transcript of Mashing in the Media-rich Humanities Classroom

Choose a blog or wiki space to use with your students. Make sure it's educational, secure, and easy to use. I use blogger.com and wikispaces.com Teach the Basics
Assign something personal

Teach students to use
one or two tools and to use embed codes to embed their products onto the wiki or blog.
Use a web 2.0 tool to
teach a concept or information
to model the tools and teach in
an exciting new way. Put it all together:
Assign students something they can do to use the tools to create a media rich journal. Go anywhere in the world to study, report, mash writing, video and other student-created multimedia. Start them early
Reading journals Prepare them for the work ahead. http://per9ortiz.blogspot.com/2010/01/irp2-by-michael-criswell.html Familiarize students with the basics of working with a blog and the standard toolbar. Have students write something personal, possibly an introduction to themselves as reporters, writers, bloggers, or critics. Prepare a Space http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ Whether you choose groups or individual assignments, 21st Century journalism can be differentiated for each learner's style, interest, readiness, and ability. Differentiate Provide Choices Even if you like structure and want to assign students specific assignments, provide a variety of choices for them to make the product their own. Use Web 2.0 Tools http://www.edutecher.com/ This site has links to over 800 teacher websites and web 2.0 tools to use in the classroom. Thank you Adam Bellow. Model the tools: Choose a point of view Choose a type of writing Choose a time period Choose a partner or group Mashing in the Humanities Classroom
