New Media Literacy

I owe Tom for putting me onto this. If you want to get a grip on how we should be training our young people for the world they're growing up in then get Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century. Henry Jenkins, Director of the Comparative Media Studies Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology published this white paper that explores new frameworks and models for media literacy. It's well worth reading.

Check out Tom's video's on YouTube. He goes by the user name tlg847. This is a taste of what you'll find...
