*NEW for 2017/2018 – The Children’s Media Lab* 
The brand new Children’s Media Lab at Ryerson and hosted in the Transmedia Zone, brings expertise from both industry and academia to explore Children’s media. From delivery methods (e.g. Virtual/augmented reality, artificial intelligence, e-books, apps, digital play), to what children’s storytelling will be needed in the future, we are eager to help create and evaluate the media of tomorrow. We are looking for 1-2 innovative projects that reflect these objectives.
