Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning is an interesting website looking into the how technology and education intersect. It really focus on how technology can enhance learning especially with teens. In one of the projects, Bronx teens with the help of NYPL created “NYC Haunts”. The students where able to find out information about their neighborhood through an interactive game(see the video below). This is an excellent example of outreach and it seems like it is very relevant to digital humanities.
