Learning Through Digital Media: Experiments in Technology and Pedagogy


This publication is the product of a collaboration that started in the fall of 2010 when a total of eighty New School faculty, librarians, students, and staff came together to think about teaching and learning with digital media. These conversations, leading up to the MobilityShifts Summit, inspired this collection of essays, which was rigorously peer-reviewed.

The Open Peer Review process took place on MediaCommons, an all-electronic scholarly publishing network focused on the field of Media Studies developed in partnership with the Institute for the Future of the Book and the NYU Libraries. We received 155 comments by dozens of reviewers. The authors started the review process by reflecting on each other’s texts, followed by invited scholars, and finally, an intensive social media campaign helped to solicit commentary from the public at large.

The New School is a leading institution when it comes to incorporating cross- disciplinary digital learning into the curriculum. It offered its first Media Studies degree program already in 1975. Learning Through Digital Mediareaffirms this commitment to interdisciplinary innovation.
