Today my blog will be about the conference at MIT I attended today.
As you may already know, MIT's Project New Media Literacies is actually a partner for the program of Global Kids I attend called Media Masters.
Two of the students who attend that after school activity were chosen to attend it.
We left New York at about four and made it to Boston at around ten that night where, after checking into our hotel were taken out for some Afghani food, which I actually found quite good.
We arrived at the conference at around eight the next morning and were assigned cameras which we used to video the conference and do brief interviews with people attending which we conducted in between workshops.
The conference revolved mostly around a project called New Media Literacy.
This is actually a program that focuses on how media can be integrated in the classroom and has an actual curriculum for teachers to follow should they choose to partake in the program.
