Jonah Bossewitch, CCNMTL lead technical architect, and Michael Preston, former CCNMTL senior educational technologist, co-authored a chapter entitled, Teaching and Learning with Video Annotations, for the recently released anthology, Learning Through Digital Media: Experiments in Technology and Pedagogy. Their chapter recapitulates the history of multimedia annotation projects at CCNMTL, focusing especially on the pedagogies and learning outcomes that have motivated CCNMTL's work over the years. The authors discuss curricular activities which have stimulated the development of our VITAL and MediaThread multimedia analysis environments.
Learning Through Digital Media was edited by New School Professor Trebor Scholz in preparation for the upcoming Mobility Shifts: An International Future of Learning Summit. The peer-reviewed book contains a series of practical applications of digital media to formal and informal learning situations, with a focus on teaching techniques across a range of services and tools. The “ambition of this collection is to discover how to use digital media for learning on campus and off. It offers a rich selection of methodologies, social practices, and hands-on assignments by leading educators who acknowledge the opportunities created by the confluence of mobile technologies, the World Wide Web, film, video games, TV, comics, and software while also acknowledging recurring challenges.”
Learning Through Digital Media was published in March 2011 by the Institute of Distributed Creativity under a creative-commons license (CC-BY) and is available in a variety of formats, including hardcopy, PDF, ebook, and web-based. Both the anthology and the summit were sponsored by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
