The Media Spot at Summer Institute at U. of Rhode Island

Rhys Daunic of The Media Spot will be participating as a faculty workshop leader at the Summer Institute on Digital Literacy at the University of Rhode Island July 14-19, 2013.

If you are an educator looking to develop media literacy infused curricula that bring together media theory, digital media texts, tools and technologies please consider JOINING US in Providence!

In a nutshell, there will be inspirational talks from visiting media literacy luminaries each day (starting with Douglas Rushkoff), followed by breakout sessions to experiment with cool tools, and dig deeper into concepts in small groups facilitated by media literacy pros.  Each day also includes workshop time in the design studio to develop project-based instructional plans to take back to your community.
