Participatory Culture - 1 views

    Good questions about The Participatory Cultures.
    Participatory Culture is a culture that everyone inside the society can talk, share and control the media. People with loud voice and much money have the equal opportunity of joining in the culture with people with nothing. This is an ideal situation. In the article, Aaron Alan Delwiche and Dr. Jennifer Jacobs Henderson express their idea on Participatory culture. They think that people should join the culture and join in efficiently. People can not bully on minority or hurt others. On the other side, it is more harmful not to join the culture. I think they are right to a large extent. However, participatory culture is an ideal situation to a large extent. People can not achieve equality on the social media

SERIOUS * New Media Literacy - in a participatory culture. ... - 4 views

    The city of Sao Paulo adopted a "participatory culture" a few months ago. Are there any other cities in the world who`ve done the same?
    It's good that people make a participatory culture over the cyberspace, it is way beyond the limitations like in a classroom setting. It creates a social connection with one another and can be a life-long learning process.

    Mark Thorley (Conventry University): Participatory music culture: the challenges for identity, creativity and recognition The advent of recording technology served to break down the link between musician and audience (Eisenberg 2005), and the music participant became the music consumer. Emerging digital technologies are now reversing this trend and music participation is all the more possible.

Participatory Culture, Agency, and the Development of Worldview Literacy - 2 views

    Schlitz M, Vieten C, Miller E. Journal of Consciousness Studies. 2010 July-Aug;17(7-8):18-36. "In this paper, we examine how increasing understanding and explicit awareness of social consciousness can develop through transformations in worldview." In order to develop a participatory culture which allows for participation by people from different cultural, educational and political backgrounds to the dominant Western culture in the digital domain, it is argued that Worldview Literacy needs to be cultivated, and tolerance learned for different worldviews. This would facilitate participation by all, and prevent the silencing and exclusion from agency of those from different backgrounds.

Scanner tags, comic book piracy and participatory culture - 0 views

    This essay takes a look at comic book scanners and why they do what they do -- namely, risking legal repercussions for the violation of IP laws without monetary reward. It's an interesting look at the participatory culture aspect of fandoms in the digital age.
    Chirospasm22 thank you for posting, I had never heard of comic book piracy until now!

    Cool short video describing skills we need to be part of the participatory culture.
    This video did a great job of illustrating the shift from critical media consumption to more participatory culture. We are no longer just consumers, we are now producers, curators and publishers. We must develop critical digital literacy skills in order to creatively express ourselves online.

Online Social Networking as Participatory Surveillance | Albrechtslund | First Monday - 5 views

    This article is interesting in that it introduces (although repurposes an existing term) the concept of participatory surveillance in the digital age as something a little less sinister than what Manzerolle argues against in his paper for the OK MOOC's 3rd module. Instead of seeing the user as a victim of the commodification of social media as Manzerolle suggests, Albrechtslund instead focuses on the fact that people are offering this information freely. Although this was written in 2008, a couple years before Manzerolle, I think these articles really balance each other. Albrechtslund focuses on the complexities of having a digital identity in a physical world and light-heartedly refers to surveillance as something users are aware of as they participate. Are users also aware of the commodification of their participation? I think many are, and for now users are ok with it. I appreciated Manzerolle's mention of options like Diaspora, which I think as a concept could play an important part of negotiating the tension between data ownership and digital social participation.
    I think these types of discussion of the implications of privacy and surveillance need a full module--in each module i keep thinking its something we need to consider. here is a more light hearted take from the humorous news website the Onion:,19753/
    This reminds me of a point made in Yevgeny Morozov's illustration video -- that dictatorial governments don't necessarily have to torture people to get information; they can simply follow Tweets and Facebook status updates. In the case of Rwanda, American religious social media is painting a picture of the Paul Kagame government that is at odds with what many dissidents in that country report. I agree with koobredaer -- a module on privacy and surveillance would be valuable.

    Hi @Jannicke Røgler. Have you read the paper. What strikes you most?
    This is a gread read! I`m not sure if it`s been shared before now, so apologies in advance if it has.
    I think the most interesting part of the report is from page 82 on. Is more related to connected or collaborative learning and gives concrete examples with tools used on different projects.

    I think Ecuador might be leading the world in terms of participatory culture - see this page from my blog. Oh, Sao Paulo also adopted the participatory culture for the local council decision making so voters can vote per issue - very cool.
