    Looking to inject some new ideas into your digital media classes this semester? EducationShift is the right destination for you!

    For the next two weeks, EdShift will run installments of its Remix series. Remix is a segment of education content on MediaShift, featuring interesting and innovative assignments, courses and curricula. Academics detail their ideas and work and, where possible, provide links and materials, so other educators can adapt them in their own programs. If the series helps you move your own class forward, consider writing a piece of your own down the road for others to Remix right back.
