Hi folks: 

I'm new to this listserv, and this is my first post.

I just read an excellent white paper titled "Confronting the Callenges of 
Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century."

It can be downloaded from

As noted in the Executive Summary: "Schools and afterschool programs must devote 
more attention to fostering what we call new media literacies: a set of cultural 
competencies and social skills that young people need in the new media landscape. . 
. " 

Anyway, I'm not seeing much of this "fostering" in my local school district (where 
I have two teenagers in attendance), but maybe I need to take a closer look.

Just wondering how much of this is really going on?
