Why do we call our site Media in the Middle?Whether students are reading books, working on a laptop, or using other electronic devices, they are accessing media. Learning is all about processing information, and in this digital age, our students have a barrage of information coming at them. We feel it is important that library media specialists, technology specialists, and teachers work together to help students make appropriate media choices, understand the media they access, and use media to enhance theireducation. So...we decided to stop arguing about whether kids are better off reading more books or using more technology. We met in the middle. We realize that It's not the means students use to get the information, it's what they do with the information they get.
