SustainED Professional Reading: Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture

When we are looking for answers to our SustainED Cluster Key Question 1.

If we are “To give the leaders of tomorrow the knowledge they need to operate in a world rapidly running out of resources and facing the challenges of climate change.” MoE SOI 2007 what learning experiences should we include?

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 .
