tms web resources site map

hub for all tms work in the field, and resources we recommend.  most of this is already there.  if it's not, I'll be creating it when things are in place, or providing the RSS links, embed codes, etc.


"features" block, node queue on the home page, any video, resource, or blog should be eligible, TMS MISSION BLOCK, NAMLE BLOCK

featured tweet, latest ~5+ rotating in a featured slot, follow us: links to @themediaspot

headlines:, latest 3 NOTES posts from blog, latest Projects, latest Tools

mission statement & link to About TMS

"notes"??? (formerly "news" or "blog")

orgaizational news

occasional articles on trends big picture

blocks to related RSS, & MLE Productions, School Resources

"tools" index




school curriculum & communications (TAG ?)

trends in the field and all of the above that are related

"projects" index

is this a separate content type? what about videos that belong here?

index (a.k.a. "MLE Classroom Resources TAG ?")

media literacy

most dynamic section. rethink this name since it is also a content type?we have old media links here (mainly to show where we come from), but the greater value is in what's being pushed out through our activity on others' sites or in the field, and what we find valueable and put in the context of media literacy ed.

main page media literacy (definitions & concepts aka "research base") (page featuring filterable list of standards nodes)

learning standards (& concepts)(page), need: simple text about how we integrate, need: explanation of how standards are listed on "Resources/Projects" on and possible feed of the latest "productions", need: feeds of articles from diigo tagged "standards", links to the standards we follow: CCSS, NAMLE, Media Literacy Questions/Concepts, Links to others that inform ours: NCTE, ISTE, Route 21, etc.

media literacy in the world (new), column 1 (formerly) reading list, permanent links with images to foundational texts with my blurb(?) (pruned from current list), feed of latest 5 from Diigo tags "tms" "research", column 2 (formerly) viewing list, permanent links with images/embeds(?) to foundational videos with my blurb(?) (pruned from current list), a feed of the latest 5 from the Diigo tag "tms" "video", (formerly) media links, could be my RSS feed from Google Reader of favorite scholars/sources blogs... including the NAMLE marketplace., feature window with latest video ready to play

about us

current projects (or collaborators), Index of Collaborator Content Type Nodes

who we are



Work with TMS ?

ARCHIVES (NEW IDEA), our philosophy (CIRCA 2006), idea: merge with media literacy page, idea: wrap into intro to foundational texts page (currently "reading list")

global stuff

social media links (google+, facebook, twitter)

header: logo, meta links (dropdown)

footer:, & affiliations, list of new stuff, dtek attribution (hoping for kickbacks!)


more frequent showcasing of what's being done in schools on

less emphasis on blog as catch-all

better integration of what's happening on the ground in schools through brief "Resources or Project" content type and links to school sites

better Social Networking integration

more prominent feeds of tweets and targetted diigo tags (see " resources" on other side)

share what we're reading, saying, and watching in the MLE community

use TMS to push out to schools instead of creating content directly on school sites

planning templates

curriculum-building resources

how-to templates

foci & pain points

integration of various feeds from 3rd parties into the main content areas

styling to make sources of info clear (us or others in the field)

styling to make clear how to follow us

ability to merge aggregated content with native stuff

Pain Points

publishing similar content on others' sites, and not TMS

no time to write narrative about all of the things I'm doing -- want to represent the links in a clean way

"Current Projects" blog is not showing enough about the work on the ground

like the simplicity of managing 2 types of content (blogs/pages), but need more separation of strands for different audiences.

I can't find my own best stuff (b/c it's buried on my site, or someone else's)

Need Flexibility to embed/incorporate 3rd party content (multimedia)

feeds linked to

Their may be ways of incorporating content from Twitter, Google+, Diigo etc. that they provide.  I want to be able to drop those in if they fit.  Otherwise, we're talking about RSS feeds at the moment. bookmarks

I see Diigo and Twitter as the 2 places I'll be focused on dropping things that will show up on

currently: link at top of media links shows all bookmarks

videos/multimedia (change to "viewing list" and/or curriculum)

diigo tags to aggregate on, media-ed-resource (phasing out), file in: "reading list", "ml curriculum", "tools", "media literacy curriculum", curriculum, activities, game(s), media-ed-resource, article, "scholarly research", other's projects (aka "curriculum"), video production examples or articles, NEW: "internet research", standards, common core, media literacy, ed-tech (if it's talking about how to use a tool), tools, ed-tech (if it's talking about a tool), resource, video, video-production (also "tools"), videos (these would be "viewing list" as well, software, Google Apps (docs, sites, etc.), voicethread, "internet research", "search engine", online tools, reading list, articles, books, "scholarly research", "viewing list" (any videos bookmarked)

needs/questions, divide up tags to feed into different "resources" lists on, can Drupal bring them in as a feed(s) with annotations? i.e. the "descriptions" field from


tms tweets, often re-posting what's on our blog, or some notes on why I think something is relevant for our audience, most direct line to others in the MLE community -- PR for TMS, will be redundant with diigo articles/links sometimes


media literacy RSS feeds we follow

currently using Google Reader

not currently linked on

needs/questions, list of who we follow on resources (maybe replacing or added to "media links"), how does this jive with "reading list", I see this as a "links" page - though it won't cover everyone in the field (some don't have RSS)

facebook "page" (doesn't exist yet)

operating as Rhys Daunic, not tms

need to create a "page" for TMS

need tweets to auto-post there

need a "like our Facebook Page" link


could be a big one: "join the 'media literacy' circle on Google+

created a "media literacy" "circle"

no presence as tms, only Rhys Daunic

not sure how it will play in yet

Google Docs (will link out to them)

Vimeo Video Host

content types


embedded media (video, images, charts, etc.); full-HTML ability

optional blocks for related tags

EXAMPLE: NCTE 2011 Film Fest Post, Video nodes embedded, Tag for other NCTE content, Other Conferences, related videos i.e. PSAs, News body text, Links to related tools (great if these were easy to pull from a dropdown or something?), Links to related projects (great if these were easy to pull from a dropdown or something?)


with 2ndary column blocks (i.e. "widgets")

rss feeds

"realted material" block (design for this)

EXAMPLE: Media Literacy Page, Lots of "related" lists (i.e. links to favorite Media Literacy Orgs, Media Literacy Standards, etc.), could be RSS, could be from Dropdowns of Tools, Standards on-site (?), on the Media Literacy Page example, the lists of Concepts and ML Key Questions would be pulled from "Standards" lists, no?, body text


site will feature videos in the following areas: - embedded in blog posts - embedded in "productions" -

pasting in url of video from 3rd party hosts, Vimeo, Youtube,

naming convention, title, who made it (client, 3rd party), age group (i.e. k-12), tags

All videos moved to Pro Account, FYI - pay attention to the "playlists" like in the block on the homepage. Could be a Node Queue in Drupal?, Rhys is downloading the videos from server, or redigitizing from DV tapes uploading to vimeo


I will mock up a layout for this content type and see how I think these different parts would look.   I will also just try archiving more projects from the past year, and see how they fit (i.e. what the parts I always have? what are sporadic? etc)

standards: links to Common Core State Standards, ISTE Standards, Core Principles of Media Literacy

linked resources (i.e. lesson plans, rubrics, unit plans) from Google Docs, or other websites

video embed

Summary (open text area)

block for related material (tags I can drop in?)

may be links to a resource on someone else's site with a brief summary

block for feed of related RSS (i.e. tags from Diigo)

Some would be tagged "Production Unit Resources", some "School Curriculum & Communication Resources"

EXAMPLE: Digital Citizenship Resources, currently a blog post, List of Links (RSS from Diigo), should I just import from Diigo and start adding the good stuff to TMS?, is there a simple way to have a field to keep adding URLs to a page like this?

EXAMPLE: Voicethread Info & Tutorials, currently a page, link to related Projects on TMS, link to related Standards, links to related projects elsewhere (RSS from Diigo?)


we had "Projects" listed as a content type, but now I'm looking at "Resources" and thinking they are the same.

standards - link to CCSS, ISTE, NAMLE

summary (open text area)

video embed

Related tools

link to Google Doc unit plans from different clients etc.

Example: GSS Finished Work, Process Write-up, Embedded Project Video, Related Videos ( playlist), Related CCSStandards (not in this post), Related tools (Voicethread, iMovie etc.)

standards & concepts

Group: (i.e. NETS, CCSS, MLE Concepts, etc.

formal standard name (i.e. RL.6.1)

body: (i.e. 1 sentence standard/concept

URL: linking to official listing of standard

node detail page would show where it's used on the site (i.e. within)


body text description of the org

auto feed of latest content from their tag

auto feed of latest videos from them (node queue)

each node needs to be reviewed/updated yearly

EXAMPLE: Soundview Academy "Current Projects" page

elements to be featured within content types

tags of client content, blog: summary of who they are, vocab, like a tag: for each client name

RSS feeds

"related material"

URLs I drop in??? with 1-2 sendtence description like Diigo?
