Ed Tech Studio tackles income inequality

The Educator’s Multimedia Studio is a capstone course that asks students to build on the skills they acquired in their prior coursework (e.g., Programming, Digital Literacies) and apply it towards a semester-long multimedia project. Each semester, the course has a unique theme that reflects a contemporary social concern. Students read a shared text based on this theme, and then develop projects that require them to do additional research. This project should contain an informational or persuasive element to it, using the research as a way of further supporting their points of view. The students voted for “Income inequality” to be this semester’s theme.

Prose not code: collaborative writing on GitHub

I have been using GitHub more and more for classes these days. Mostly, I have been using it as a way to share code with my programming classes. In Web Programming, I share code for the sample project called Teaching Labor (check out the sample site). GitHub offers a great way for me to share the code, and we have also been using the project wiki as a central location for course related docs. It’s more robust than the built-in wiki we get with Moodle, Adelphi’s course management system. Students are also encouraged, but not required to push their own code to github repositories for group work, version control, etc.
