Expanding the power of Digital Media to Communicate & Educate
DME 2019 Symposium - Thanks for coming!
Thank you so much for joining us for the Digital Media in Education 2019 Symposium. We were so pleased to see such a good turn out to this condensed version of the DME Conference. Having you there made the day so much better!
We are hoping that this event was more than just a Symposium but that it offered a ‘place of meeting’, a convergence of multidisciplinary professionals with diverse vantage points into the world we call Digital Media. It continues to be our intention to launch a new community which has a vision for what and how Digital Media can influence education and its impact on our world. Your participation and contribution will help drive the future of this annual event.
This year’s event honed in on the importance of the ‘Story’ no matter what form of technology and media is being used to communicate new ideas, the message and exploring through teaching and learning. We also focused on how collaboration within digital media initiatives is an important piece of expanding, enhancing and developing the who, what, where, when and whys of Digital Media.
We are very appreciative of all those who contributed to our Digital Media Showcase and those of you who took time to view their digital media projects and cast a vote for your favorite. I am looking forward to you joining us again next year and perhaps you will even bring along colleagues that you know will appreciate and add value to this new community. As soon as our highlight video of DME 2019 is available we will send it your way to help promote next year’s event.
Please take some time to fill out our on-line DME 2019 Symposium feedback form. Your input will be invaluable as we begin to make plans for the 3rd Digital Media in Education Conference in 2020! We would also appreciate you helping us spread the word about next year’s conference as details develop.
Thanks again and enjoy the summer!
