You may have seen the popular YouTube series, Everything’s A Remix before. In fact, we have listed it as one of our recommended video resources for media literacy here.

The series creator, Kirby Ferguson has recently dropped an other video explaining how creativity happens in our subconscious mind and the steps we can take to develop new ideas and get creative. “Everything we see, hear, watch, listen to, experience, taste etc. are copied and combined into new creations and new ideas.” Learning by doing is a key tenet of media literacy education and remixing is a great way to deconstruct and decode media content.
