Why does social media matter?
don't use it.
It would distract
It's not
not good at computers
managed to get though school using Microsoft Office and Google.

Why does social media matter?
Social is an
illusory term
. It's used to differentiate
publishing and controlled media channels from
produced media. It is seen as inferior and disruptive media by the

Also a new
symbolic language
used to
represent cultural communication culture
inside a biome of
consumer communities

Technology and Media
They do work separately, they very different but the work a lot better when they collaborate and have something to say together
"The Tegan & Sara Effect"
Media tells stories.
Media is a highly
organised commercial system
which gives us a sense of having a pervasive
"second self"
presence which can interact with others via Internet communication layers.
Media tells stories.

Organising Elements
Participatory Culture
Defined as:
Play, Performance, Simulation, Appropriation, Remixing, Multitasking, Distributed Cognition, Judgement, Transmedia Navigation, Networking, Negotiation.
Henry Jenkins (2009)
Participatory culture shifts the focus of literacy from individual expression to community involvement.
Rather than deal with each technology in isolation,
take an ecological approach
, thinking about the interrelationship among different communication technologies, the
cultural communities
that grow up around them, and the activities they support.
What media
feels like
to media-centric teenager.
Media/Devices shape childhoods regardless of whether or not children use or understand them. Children want to please adults and so copy them.
"We need to shift from superficial homage to 21st century skills to implementing learning goals relevant to the new era.
Critical thinking and problem Solving
Creativity and Imagination
Character Education
We are moving away from a world in which
some produce and many consume media
toward one in which everyone has a more active stake in the culture that is produced.
Kids need to know how it works.
Children often had trouble identifying advertising practices
Children are used to a world where commercials stood apart from the entertainment content
And so do their parents.
How do we ensure that every child has access to the skills and experiences needed to become a
participant in the
social, cultural, economic, and political future of our society
Your job
How do we ensure that every child has the ability to articulate his or her understanding of how media shapes perceptions of the world?
How do we ensure that every child has been socialised into the emerging ethical values that
shape their practices as media makers and as participants in online communities?
The new literacyies
almost all
social skills developed through collaboration and networking
. These skills build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical-analysis skills taught in the classroom.
What teachers are you connected
to right now? Why not?
Historically, the curriculum in schools has
attempting to teach "media studies" as a discipline. Instead, it subsumed "media" into other subjects such as English or Visual Arts. It failed to see it as a unique topic, worthy of study.
Whos job is it to teach kids about technology and the media?
Technology is studies as discipline. In TAS (technology and applied science) which also houses Computing subjects.
Outside if that syllabus, technology can be found as outcomes, but these remain basic, and out of sync with society and culture. (Cultural Lag)
Whos job is it to teach kids about technology and the media?
Texting is a constant among kids. it never stops. It is a way of being. The bad thing is that you can take kids to see the Taj Mahal, and they will be texting. The good thing is they will be texting about the Taj Mahal.
Do not attempt to ignore culture and hope to avoid media and technology in the next decade ...
