New Technology Explained


Common Craft videos - technology

The videos may surprise you. They're short and simple. They use paper cut-outs. They cover subjects "in Plain English." But lurking under the simple surface are lessons that have been crafted with great care. Despite their fun and lighthearted style, they take explanation seriously. Topics include technology, money, society, and green.

New Media

New Media is a library guide developed by Madison College. New Media "is primarily electronic communication through computers and mobile devices [i.e cell phones, smart phones, PDA's] that provide information and/or sharing capabilities between users that often have a defined personal, educational or recreational objective.  New media is ever-changing and expanding and continuously offers new options for teaching and communicating." Madison College New Media Committee
