    3. 4. Course Outline
    4. 5. Participatory Culture <ul><li>According to a recent study from the Pew Internet & American Life project (Lenhardt & Madden, 2005), more than one-half of all teens have created media content, and roughly one-third of teens who use the Internet have shared content they produced. </li></ul>
    5. 6. A Participatory Culture. . . <ul><li>Relatively low barriers to artistic expression and civic engagement </li></ul><ul><li>Strong support for creating and sharing one’s creations with others </li></ul><ul><li>Some type of informal mentorship whereby what is known by the most experienced is passed along to novices </li></ul>
    6. 7. A Participatory Culture . . . <ul><li>Members believe that their contributions matter </li></ul><ul><li>Members feel some degree of social connection with one another (at the least they care what other people think about what they have created) </li></ul>
    7. 8. Forms of Participatory Culture <ul><li>Affiliations — memberships, formal and informal, in online communities centered around various forms of media, such as Friendster, Facebook, message boards, metagaming, Second Life, or MySpace </li></ul><ul><li>Expressions — producing new creative forms, such as digital sampling, skinning and modding, fan videomaking, fan fiction writing, zines, mash-ups </li></ul>

Implications <ul><li>A growing body of scholarship suggests potential benefits of these forms of participatory culture, including: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a changed attitude toward intellectual property, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the diversification of cultural expression, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the development of skills valued in the modern workplace, and a more empowered conception of citizenship. </li></ul></ul>
    10. 11. Implications <ul><li>Participatory culture shifts the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to community involvement. </li></ul><ul><li>The new literacies almost all involve social skills developed through collaboration and networking. </li></ul><ul><li>These skills build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. </li></ul>
    11. 12. The New Literacies <ul><li>Play — the capacity to experiment with one’s surroundings as a form of problem-solving </li></ul><ul><li>Performance — the ability to adopt alternative identities for the purpose of improvisation and discovery </li></ul><ul><li>Simulation — the ability to interpret and construct dynamic models of real-world processes </li></ul><ul><li>Appropriation — the ability to meaningfully sample and remix media content </li></ul>
    12. 13. The New Literacies <ul><li>Multitasking — the ability to scan one’s environment and shift focus as needed to salient details. </li></ul><ul><li>Distributed Cognition — the ability to interact meaningfully with tools that expand mental capacities </li></ul><ul><li>Collective Intelligence — the ability to pool knowledge and compare notes with others toward a common goal </li></ul><ul><li>Judgment — the ability to evaluate the reliability and credibility of different information sources </li></ul>
    13. 14. The New Literacies <ul><li>Transmedia Navigation — the ability to follow the flow of stories and information across multiple modalities </li></ul><ul><li>Networking — the ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information </li></ul><ul><li>Negotiation — the ability to travel across diverse communities, discerning and respecting multiple perspectives, and grasping and following alternative norms. </li></ul>
