One of our educational strands here at media.dot.edu is the use of various media as a source for content creation in the classroom. Moreover, we also seek to provide educators with curricular resources from a variety of sources as well. These include:
- Teachable moment learning activities based on a specific film or TV show, such as Wipeout, Gattaca, the Thundermans or An Inconvenient Truth.
- Construction of knowledge through vetted educational videos from Youtube, Khan Academy; subject-specific iPad Apps and other appropriate content.
- Project-based, inquiry-based and App based summative and formative assessments.
- Communication of ideas through papers and presentations along with blog posts and webisodes.
