    And now … the “mash up” of various media is creating new platforms of expression. For example: Mashing up Google Maps with narrative stories of place and then embedding the writing and photographs right into the map itself. Remixing Video content – adding layers of text and audio to video. Piecing together bits of audio from various sources to create a hybrid of voices, sounds and music.

    • Play — the capacity to experiment with one’s surroundings
    • Appropriation — the ability to sample and remix media content
    • Multi-tasking — the ability to scan one’s environment and shift focus as needed
    • Collective Intelligence — the ability to pool knowledge with others toward a common goal
    • Transmedia Navigation — the ability to follow the flow of stories and information across multiple modalities
    • Networking — the ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information
    • Negotiation — the ability to travel across diverse communities, discerning and respecting multiple perspectives, and grasping and following alternative norms.
