Digital literacies : New Media Literacies

This video has the title “New Media Literacies”  It has various people talking about the “new” literacies. What these are and why and how such literacies are important to people today.

Members of the research team at Project New Media Literacies discuss the social skills and cultural competencies needed to fully engage with today’s participatory culture. Featuring Henry Jenkins.

One of the comments left about this video was:

These people are talking about literacy, but they use words that do not exist. Here’s some questions I wanted answered about New Media Literacies:

  • Is it important?
  • Is it appropriate?
  • Will it change anything?
  • Is it worth action?

What I would like to do is ask these questions to our students, after they had watched the video. I am sure they would all have a lot of good answers to these questions
