Re-Vinyl, a solution to media illiteracy and isolated learning, turns music consumption on mobile devices into creative learning experiences through media rich digital "vinyls" of student's favorite musical artists with text, video, photos, and audio that build media literacy, metacognition, and 21st century writing skills. Users can then publish their artistic responses to musician's "call to actions" onto their social networks.
Michael Morgan, the CEO of newquill, Inc., started the company after finishing his Master's in Teaching at USC (newquill Product Prototype Demo: View and discuss it in Vialogues). He saw the need to give teachers and students tools to build awareness and critical thinking about the media so dominant in our daily lives. The possibilities are endless - and they should be.
Open to all members of the university community.
