Would a serious researcher look to comic books and videogames as sources of inspiration for how to transform education? Of course they would!
Join the New Media Consortium’s Connect@NMC conversation with Dr. Ruben Puentedora, CEO of NMC Partner, Hippasus on Monday, May 18, 2009 at 11:00am PT (check local time). Dr. Ruben Puentedora will discuss the lessons to be learned from these and related media, and his experiences applying them in both higher ed and K12 classrooms.
He will also discuss the toolkit he uses to put them in practice, and provide a sneak peek at some of the activities that he has planned for his Preconference Workshop: Making Comics into Interactive Media: A Hands-on, Two-Day Digital Storytellling Production at the upcoming NMC 2009 Summer Conference. There is still time to reserve yourself a spot in this session.
