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
occasional articles on trends big picture
blocks to related RSS, & MLE Productions, School Resources
school curriculum & communications (TAG ?)
trends in the field and all of the above that are related
is this a separate content type? what about videos that belong here?
index (a.k.a. "MLE Classroom Resources TAG ?")
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 tms.org 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
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")
social media links (google+, facebook, twitter)
header: logo, meta links (dropdown)
footer:, namle.net & jmle.org affiliations, list of new stuff, dtek attribution (hoping for kickbacks!)
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
more prominent feeds of tweets and targetted diigo tags (see "tms.org resources" on other side)
share what we're reading, saying, and watching in the MLE community
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)
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.
I see Diigo and Twitter as the 2 places I'll be focused on dropping things that will show up on TMS.org
currently: link at top of media links shows all bookmarks
videos/multimedia (change to "viewing list" and/or curriculum)
diigo tags to aggregate on tms.org:, 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 tms.org, can Drupal bring them in as a feed(s) with annotations? i.e. the "descriptions" field from diigo.com
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
currently using Google Reader
not currently linked on tms.org
needs/questions, list of who we follow on tms.org 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)
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
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")
"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, Blip.tv
naming convention, title, who made it (client, 3rd party), age group (i.e. k-12), tags
All videos moved to Vimeo.com Pro Account, FYI - pay attention to the Blip.tv "playlists" like in the block on the themediaspot.org 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
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)
link to Google Doc unit plans from different clients etc.
Example: GSS Finished Work, Process Write-up, Embedded Project Video, Related Videos (blip.tv playlist), Related CCSStandards (not in this post), Related tools (Voicethread, iMovie etc.)
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
tags of client content, blog: summary of who they are, vocab, like a tag: for each client name
URLs I drop in??? with 1-2 sendtence description like Diigo?
