'Why are we doing this?' The benefits and drawbacks of replacing writing assignments with media production assignments using online tools

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

To increase media literacy skills, instructors teaching media studies courses should encourage the use of free online tools as a way to supplement—or replace—traditional writing assignments. I reflect on the benefits and drawbacks of using Blackboard Blogs, Audacity podcasting, Voicethread.com, and Jing.com to supplement or replace writing assignments. A key finding is the resistance from many students using new technologies and the perception that media production is less valuable than traditional academic writing.
