Confronting the Challenges of a Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century

Subject: on-line
Date: 2006-10-19

Henry Jenkins at MIT writing for the MacArthur Foundation:  "A central goal of this report is to shift the focus of the conversation about the digital divide from questions of technological access to those of opportunities to participate and to develop the cultural competencies and social skills needed for full involvement . . .  Participatory culture shifts the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to community involvement.  The new literacies almost all involve social skills developed through collaboration and networking."
