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

When we are looking for answers to our activ@eden Cluster Key Questions:

What are the conditions of value in teaching and learning when students are researchers?
How might ICTs enhance or betray these conditions of value?

The following occasional paper (pdf) on digital media and learning is a great start

Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century by Henry Jenkins, Director of the Comparative Media Studies Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Katie Clinton Ravi Purushotma Alice J. Robison Margaret Weigel pdf

This white paper is a great start to understand the critical new media literacies we should be developing in our students if we want them to become leaders in the participatory cultures of tomorrow .
