Supporting Digital Video Composition in the Library: A New Opportunity for Instruction
Digital technologies are transforming curriculum at a rapid pace as more faculty integrate digital media into student assignments. Faculty may be assigning video composition and other digital media, but how much do students really know about integrating media? Intellectual property? Visual literacy? Librarians have the opportunity to facilitate an intelligent and integrated move toward the use of these digital tools in classrooms and participate in educating students on media literacy. This presentation explores the information and media literacy considerations in multimodal projects, and will highlight how librarians can use sites such as Flickr, YouTube, Sound Cloud and Google Image Search to address common misconceptions among students.
