We are really looking forward to hearing from our special guest, Sam Gliksman, on our show this week. Sam is the author of 'Creating Media for Learning' and he has some great tips and tools to share with us for designing student-centered projects! Mobile devices are redefining the nature of our everyday interactions and media creation has become part of our everyday language. If communication is the heart of education then media creation can and should be utilized for deeper and more effective learning. In this webinar we'll look at how to design student-centered projects that use formats such as video, animation, eBooks and more. If you have a mobile device Sam would like you to download the free DAQRI app prior to the webinar so you will be prepared to experience how it works.
