New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture | Professional Development | Scoop.it

"The New Media Literacies constitute the core cultural competencies and social skills that young people need in our new media landscape. We call them “literacies,” but they change the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to one of community involvement. They build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. If these New Media Literacies are learned – and they can be learned without computers in the classroom – they can form the building blocks for students’ participation in new media."

The New Media Literacies - core cultural competencies and social skills = Play, Performance, Simulation, Appropriation, Multitasking, Distributed Cognition, Judgment, Transmedia Navigation, Networking, Negotiation and Visualisation.

How well are we doing in developing these competencies/skills ourselves and with our students?

Fabrice Marcoux's curator insight, August 13, 2013 1:15 PM

Maintenant, c'est l'apprentissage de nouveaux modes de participation, qui exigent en réalité un engagement plus profond, qui est appelé par les nouveaux médias. Être alphabète de la culture numérique suppose que l'on apprenne à être unE lettréE de l'implication dans le débat public.

À bon entendeurE, salut !
