Content Creation by Teens <ul><li>57% of online teens have created some kind of content online, which includes </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Photos </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Video </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Writing, stories </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Artwork </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Songs, music </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>19% have a blog </li></ul><ul><li>38% read the blogs of others </li></ul><ul><li>76% of social network-using teens leave comments on the blogs of friends </li></ul><ul><li>Self-expression and feedback </li></ul>From Pew Internet and American Life Project -- http://www.pewinternet.org/PPF/r/105/presentation_display.asp

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.
