      • 21st century media literacies


        from JD Lasica Added 6,846 28 2

        "Increasingly I think the digital divide is less about access to technology and more about the difference between those who know how and those who don't know how," says author Howard Rheingold, speaking in front of King's College at Cambridge University. "The ability to know has suddenly become the ability to search and the ability to sift" and discern. Earlier in the week Howard gave the keynote address at Reboot Britain, and he recounts some of them here. Among the Essential Literacies he cites are: • Attention • Participation • Collaboration • Critical consumption (which includes "crap detection" -- we live in an age when you can get the answer to anything out of the air, but how do you know what to trust?) The 6-minute video was captured on a Flip Ultra.

                Created in the Reel Grrls Advanced Thesis Program in 2009, these commercial remixes came out of a short workshop taught by Video Remix Artist Jonathan McIntosh, creator of the "Buffy Vs. Edward" YouTube sensation. Students were given the assignment of mixing together video and audio from toy commercials aimed at boys and those aimed at girls. The results not only provided insightful commentary on the advertising industry and gender, but were also hilarious!
