As service-learning projects become more widely used in the humanities classroom, we start to consider more seriously the pedagogy of service learning and the best ways to reach out to students participating in service learning projects. One way we can facilitate service learning is through the use of new media. This session will discuss the use of new media (such as podcasting, video podcasting, wikis, blogs, websites, social media, etc.) as a pedagogical tool in the service-learning humanities classroom. I seek to organize a panel of four or five presenters to explore the uses of new media in service learning projects.

By June 5, 2010, submit a 250-word abstract detailing your experience using new media in the context of a service-learning project. Please include specific information regarding the new media form used (podcast, video podcast or vodcast, wiki, blog, website, etc.)and the way that new media functioned as a pedagogical tool. Proposals should be sent to Laura Howard, Georgia State University, laura.w.howard@gmail.com.
