How to Play the New Media Modules
The New Media Modules are designed as dynamic modular resources that can be ‘played’, providing flexibility and creative agency for course directors, teachers, and maker communities – as well as for individuals wishing to learn about the creative/critical applications of new media for situated literacy-learning, making, and sharing.
Modules can be played individually or in combination with one another, and discrete module ‘pieces’ (hexagons) can be mobilized alone – like a song on a playlist or a single track on a record – for your own specific course aims and learning purposes.
Each modules consists of video works (scholar presentations, artist interviews, case studies/models, and software tutorials), readings (journal articles authored or curated by video contributors), interactive tools like the MakeMe card decks, and production pedagogy applications: suggested ideas for applied creational making and design, as pertaining to respective module themes – learning through digital game design, digitial storytelling, critical making, and wikijamming.
Modules – or module pieces – are designed to be used in, or modded for, fully online, blended and face-to-face settings.
