Should users be allowed to edit and write information on wikis?
Students rely on sites like Wikipedia for help on tasks
Anybody can create an account and make/edit a page.. There’s nocertainty that the information found on Wikipedia pages are correct
Wikipedia gives the publicempowerment to feel that they havesome control in what they consumeThis is a form of Web 2.0 which is currently very popular onlinewith many platforms allowing the consumer to become theproducer
Henry Jenkins’ Theory – Participatory culturesJenkins has written a lot about ‘convergence culture’ Audience have becomesophisticated ‘users’ of many different platforms of media which cross over. ‘Bert isEvil’ is an example – a photo-shopped image of Bert from Sesame St posing withOsama Bin Laden was published on line, found by accident by a print house inPakistan, who had no idea who Bert was, and then printed on Anti-Americanposters, which were then filmed by CNN News and broadcast on American TV.Jenkins uses this example to shows how audiences are no longer justconsumers, they are also producers and users. They create and consume, participateand publish, download and upload, receive and share. Blogs, network sites, web 2.0and wikis are just some examples of audiences as powerful producers within theworld of Media production and reception.Source: http://mediaalevel.edublogs.org/media-audiences/
Gramsci – Power and HegemonyGramsci – Power and HegemonyGramsci is primarily concerned with power. As a Marxist, he believed that societywas structured unfairly. The rich upper classes were an elite in society who ownedthe means of production. This power gave them a control over the masses who workbut do not receive their fair share of wealth. Indeed, 80% of the world’s resourcesare controlled by only 5% of the world’s population. Gramsci was interested in howthis unfair status quo is maintained and reproduced.Hegemony is the idea that the masses are controlled not through coersion or militaryforce, but by ideological manipulation. The Media is one of the institutions insociety, along with religion, politics and education that pass on a dominant ideologyto the masses of conformity and consent. Indeed, Gramsci believed that the masseswere manipulated into giving their consent to the unfair capitalist system.Source: http://mediaalevel.edublogs.org/media-audiences/
