At Ball State, we use emerging media to dive into entertainment, use virtual worlds as a teaching tool, study the motion of the human body, fabricate construction materials, and more.
Emerging media is the evolving use of technology and digital content to enhance work, play, and learning; broaden access to information, accelerating communications and understanding; and enhance personal connection by eliminating the constraints of time and location.
Watch the video above for a visual introduction to how we integrate emerging media into our classrooms, research its impact on society, use it in scientific endeavors, and capture its potential to sustain the environment.
Then read our featured stories and enjoy the accompanying videos for more.
This may seem like science fiction, but it's only the beginning.
