New Media Modules

2016-17

New Media Modules

The new media modules were developed by an interdisciplinary team of Ontario-based university faculty members, York university students (teacher candidates), practicing teachers,  game designers, critical makers, digital storytellers, and artists. There are currently four modules:

learning through game design, learning through digital storytelling, learning through critical making, and wikijamming (an extension of critical making, playable on our new media modules wiki). Modules learning outcomes are designed around the principle of production pedagogies. Each module invites students to not only engage in theories surrounding new media and new literacies and learning through situated making and design, but to also undertake a culminating self-directed (individual or group) production pedagogy project.
