(please note that since this was a keynote exported to a pdf the embedded videos will not play) The first MTV generation were the ultimate consumers of mass media - characterized by the affinity for the visual and the desire for diversion. They demanded the fast-paced and were able to quickly process information, albeit riddled with uncertainty. This culture was the springboard for a new sort of media landscape- one that even further breaks away from the privilege of print and whose power has shifted from that of the hierarchical to that of the participatory and crowd-based. What it means to be “literate” in this environment is mercurial, but we can identify some major trends and help our students by cultivating these “new literacies” in the classroom...and beyond. The remixED “MTV” stands for “Mobile, Transliterate, and Visible”. How can we leverage the power of mobile technology and social media to engage learners in relevant ways? What types of literacies are emerging, and what academic, technical, and social skills should we address to help our students succeed in exponentially changing world? How can we embrace transparency and help students wisely and effectively share and amplify their work on a global scale?
