Zohra Guissé, a lecturer in French and Arabic at Penn State Berks, is one of eleven faculty members selected across the University to participate in Penn State’s Mobile Media Pilot program. The program, an initiative of the Penn State Media Commons, will explore how mobile devices can be used in students’ media production workflow.
During the Fall 2011 semester, the students in Guissé’s French 001 course will apply the language skills that they learn in class by creating several video assignments. The projects will be filmed, edited, and published entirely from a mobile device. Guissé’s classes have created multimedia projects in the past; however this project will be accomplished solely through the use of a mobile device.
Goals of the pilot program are to evaluate how mobile devices impact the student media production workflow, to determine if students can do more or different types of work with mobile devices, and to identify differences in learning that result from the immediacy of a mobile-based communication process.
Additional information about the pilot program is available at http://mediacommons.psu.edu/mobilemedia or contact Guissé at 610-396-6197 or via e-mail at zxg10@psu.edu.
