Playing with Media
 

simple ideas for powerful sharing

Authored by Wesley A Fryer
Illustrated by Rachel C Fryer

We need to play with media to become more effective communicators. This book was written to inspire and empower you, as a creative person, to expand your personal senses of digital literacy and digital agency as a multimedia communicator. As you learn to play with digital text, images, audio and video, you will communicate more creatively and flexibly with a wider variety of options. Although written primarily for educators, anyone who is interested in learning more about digital communication will learn something new from this book.

As children, we learn to progressively make sense of our confusing world through play. The same dynamics apply to us as adults communicating with new and different media forms.
