        Digital Video
        Distribution and Playback Options
        How it enhances teaching
        Why the Library Media Specialist
        should be the “go to” person
Library Media Center and Multimedia - What is
               the connection?

    - broadband internet and modern computer
     processors allow for new models of media
                    distribution
  - media is information; needs to be located,
            interpreted, and utilized

  - as with all information, librarians should be
       at the gateway to help students and
      teachers effectively and ethically use
                    information

     Benefits of Digital Formats

 easy distribution- multiple users can view
and revisit media at any Internet connected
                 computer
Usage- purchased, public domain and properly
cited material can be integrated into teacher
 lesson plans (Powerpoint, digital videos) and
               student projects
  Scope- more content available as internet
expands and technologies improve; economy of
   scale tempting more media producers to
          embrace digital distribution
       Drawbacks of Digital Formats
Acquisition and playback - requires at least one
  (preferably broadband) Internet connected
 computer; requires LCD projector or advanced
   computer lab for use with a class $$$$$
Copyright Issues - Often unclear what is or is
not educational “ fair use”; rules keep changing

  Reliability of availability - can not always be
 sure that content will remain available or free;
  reliance on technology can be problematic for
                    teachers
                   Why bother?
 As with online databases, content is the same
  as traditional library media - images, sound,
                INFORMATION
Librarians are crucial (as always) to help, locate,
 interpret , and utilize information from these
                  digital sources

   Digital Ethics - Library Media Specialists
    must be in the process to ensure that
 material is being used properly - adherence to
     “fair use” (distribution, citation, etc.)
              Why Bother? (cont.)


             these media are “hot”-
 Will be used by students and teachers anyways

Library Media Specialists need to be informed so
 that we can help students and teachers use the
          media effectively it ethically
           Why Bother? (cont.)
