    • The informational worlds of young people
  • 3.  
  • 4. John Ellis’ Seeing Things (2002):
    • Era of scarcity: post-war industrial welfare state, developing mass consumer society, national consolidation, public service broadcasting (1950s – late 1970s)‏
    • Era of availability : commercial competition, satellite, post-industrial social formations, politics of identity and difference, citizens and consumers (late 1970s – early 2000s)‏
    • Era of plenty: digital television, technological convergence and interactivity, tailored media, further audience fragmentation, ‘time famine and choice fatigue’
  • 5. Or… What did you think of X last night? To Did you see X last night? To Have you heard of X?
  • 6.  
  • 7. Informational stacking: Powerpoint
    • A fact

  • 12. Transforming information:
    • What makes our channel reliable and legitimate?
    • What makes it worth paying attention to?
    • What are our sources and how do we display them?
    • Can we provide countervailing information?
    • Do we (can we) put issues and information in wider frameworks and contexts of understanding?
  • 13. Young People, the Internet and Civic Participation
    • European Commission/Civicweb project: How do civic websites for young people conceptualise their audience?
    • Huge variation in views of the ‘connected disconnected’ generation
    • Young people exist in specific, real local contexts
    • Producers assumed that because they are young they can communicate with young people
    • Problem: information to empower those who are already empowered?
    • Many recognised that young people are frequently wrongly defined by institutions that provide information for them
  • 14. Down with the kids…
    • Engage young people through popular culture/entertainment?
    • Attempt to speak to young people in ‘their’ language?
    • Differences in how civic engagement of young people is viewed: how to be serious?
