This chapter explores some of the new media technology currently being used by educational institutions to support student creativity. Two facts regarding technology usage remain clear. First, today's learners may be tech-savvy, but they are also critically naive; and second, students often enter institutions that are unable to keep pace with the technology and the cultural changes currently happening. Institutions, such as the University of Southern California (USC) and the Ross Schools, have engaged with the opportunities and struggles that accompany the proliferation of such new media. The chapter emphasizes the ways in which both the USC School of Cinematic Arts and the Ross Schools have integrated technology across all areas of learning, and have made multimedia literacy a cornerstone of their educational missions.

Keywords:   new media technology, student creativity, cultural changes, Ross Schools, USC School of Cinematic Arts, multimedia literacy
