Digital Media – New Learners of the 21st Century

I want to recommend this PBS program from February 2011 to you. Click on the full episode link below to view.

“Digital media is increasingly present in kids’ formal and informal educational settings, becoming as common as pencils and notebooks were to their parents. Teachers and parents wonder: What are students doing with these technologies?

Digital Media: New Learners of the 21st Century addresses this vital question, taking viewers to the frontlines of what is rapidly becoming an education revolution. The film, targeted at parents, teachers, and anyone concerned about education in America, explores how exceptional educators are increasingly using digital media and interactive practices to ignite their students’ curiosity and ingenuity, help them become civicly engaged, allow them to collaborate with peers worldwide, and empower them to direct their own learning.”
