I listened to the conference about primary access. Primary access is a web based digital video editor designed for social studies curriculum. The teachers select pictures from different places on the internet, then the students write on the website descriptions of the photos. Those descriptions will then serve as the captions during the movie. Once the videos are finished, the teacher can then go back and leave comments that the students will be able to see. The authors of this blog feel that digital media is the future of education. Because it is relatively new, it is almost unknown the amount of benefits it could have on education. As new methods of implementing digital media in the classroom are developed, I think that the amount of learning involved with it will go up substantially.
