Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - 0 views

    This white paper (Jenkins et al., 2006) identifies the three core challenges: the participation gap, the transparency problem and the ethics challenge, and shares a provisionary list of skills needed for full engagement in today's participatory culture.
    We have also identified a set of core social skills and cultural competencies that young people
    should acquire if they are to be full, active, creative, and ethical participants in this emerging
    participatory culture:
    Play - the capacity to experiment with your surroundings as a form of problem-solving
    Performance - the ability to adopt alternative identities for the purpose of improvisation
    and discovery
    Simulation - the ability to interpret and construct dynamic models of real world
    Appropriation - the ability to meaningfully sample and remix media content
    Multitasking - the ability to scan one's environment and shift focus as needed to salient
    Distributed Cognition - the ability to interact meaningfully with tools that expand
    mental capacities
    Collective Intelligence - the ability to pool knowledge and compare notes with others
    toward a common goal
    Judgment - the ability to evaluate the reliability and credibility of different information
    Transmedia Navigation - the ability to follow the flow of stories and information
    across multiple modalities
    Networking - the ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information
    Negotiation - the ability to travel across diverse communities, discerning and respecting
    multiple perspectives, and grasping and following alternative norms.
