new media exemplar library

New Media Exemplar Library

Each exemplar features a series of video interviews with a professional media maker, organized by chapter.

I just watched the Cory Doctorow exemplar, parts 1 (Copyfighter) and 7 (Sci-Fi as Political Activism), and they were great! I think this is a resource that I would use and recommend to other teachers.

Other exemplars about a comic book artist, a special effects artist, radio host and reporter, Graffiti Artist Collective. If they are as well done as the Cory Doctorow exemplar, then they would engage many students.

Thanks to Borderland for the link. Henry Jenkins is behind it.
