Teaching Intermedia Literacy Tools (TILT)
TILT (Teaching Intermedia Literacy Tools) works within schools and community-based programs to teach young people the fundamentals of moviemaking and media literacy through hands-on training in video production. Programs equip young people with the tools to critically understand media messages and to create their own alternative media. Through a combination of technical training and hands-on experience we give students the means to gain a meaningful voice in media and to tell their own stories.
Action! In the Classroom: A Guide to Student Produced Digital Video in K-12 Education
Today's students are attracted to video and readily engage in any project that incorporates the medium. Digital video is easier to manipulate and much less expensive than analog video. Students can create video content and the software can be taught in less than one hour. There is great potential to employ student-produced video as an educational tool and this book explains and instructs teachers how to exploit this potential.
This comprehensive work, divided into four sections, covers all aspects of video production including: foundation concepts; the video production process; equipment review; and an appendix. The companion Web site offers downloadable forms used in the book and support presentation material.

Center for Digital Storytelling - listen deeply, tell stories
"The Center for Digital Storytelling is a California-based non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization rooted in the art of personal storytelling. We assist people of all ages in using the tools of digital media to craft, record, share, and value the stories of individuals and communities, in ways that improve all our lives.
Many individuals and communities have used the term "digital storytelling" to describe a wide variety of new media production practices. What best describes our approach is its emphasis on personal voice and facilitative teaching methods. Many of the stories made in our workshops are directly connected to the images collected in life's journey. But our primary concern is encouraging thoughtful and emotionally direct writing."

"Scape the Hood was conceived and designed as a locative storytelling project for the Digital Storytelling Initiative at KQED for the opening of the 8th annual Digital Storytelling Festival. We convened a group of storytellers, artists, and technologists to envision what this project could be. It became a narrative archeology experiment, combining digital storytelling and emerging technology by overlaying a virtual landscape on the physical world. As originally designed, the audience walks the streets and listens to the neighbourhood stories, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells from both the physical and the virtual world."
