Welcome to the continuing work of

The New Media Literacies Project and the New Hampshire Early Adopters group

New Media Literacies (NML)

New Media Literacies is a research project established at MIT's Comparative Media Studies program and now at USC Annenberg School for Communication. The central goal is to engage educators and learners in today's participatory culture.

New Hampshire Early Adopters Group (EA)

NML partnered with New Hampshire's Department of Education to facilitate a year-long professional development initiative using the new media literacies as a springboard for developing innovative curriculum. A group of educators explored the challenges that 21st Century learners face by expanding their own learning experiences using a participatory, digital model of professional development. These educators were able to practice their own skills as teachers by creating, collaborating, connecting, and circulating with one another in an interactive, multi-media environment.
