As 21st century educators, we should provide opportunities for students to demonstrate mastery and understanding of the curriculum not only with text but also with images, audio, and video. Dr. Wesley Fryer will invite and inspire you to become a better multimedia communicator and a pioneer with digital media in this dynamic presentation. Learn how to “expand the map” of assessment options in your classroom to include student products like narrated slideshows, enhanced eBooks including recorded audio, five photo stories with images, and more. Learn practical ways to overcome the anxiety and fear which often accompanies technology integration proposals by creating personal media products. Learn how to enhance your digital resume as a professional educator with examples of your own media creations as well as students' projects you facilitate. Links to student media examples as well as project storyboards/tools are available on http://maps.playingwithmedia.com.
