Abstract

A proposal to move the academic area of digital media and learning toward more coherence.In this report, noted scholar James Paul Gee discusses the evolution of digital media and learning (DMAL) from its infancy as an “academic area” into a more organized field or coherent discipline. Distinguishing among academic areas, fields, disciplinary specializations, and thematic disciplines, Gee describes other academic areas that have fallen into these categories or developed into established disciplines. He argues that DMAL will not evolve until a real coherence develops through collaboration and the accumulation of shared knowledge. Gee offers a concrete proposal of one way scholars in DMAL could move the area forward to a more cohesive, integrated, and collaborative enterprise: the production of what he terms “worked examples.” In Gee's sense of a worked example, scholars attempting to build the new area of DMAL would publicly display their methods of valuing and thinking about a specific problem, proposing them as examples of “good work” in order to engender debate about what such work in DMAL might come to look like and what shape the area itself might take. The goal would not be for the proposed approach to become the accepted one but for it to become fodder for new work and collaboration. Gee concludes by offering a sample worked example that illustrates his proposal.

Abstract

Social networking, blogging, vlogging, gaming, instant messaging, downloading music and other content, uploading and sharing their own creative work: these activities made possible by the new digital media are rich with opportunities and risks for young people. This report, part of the GoodPlay Project, undertaken by researchers at Harvard Graduate School of Education's Project Zero, investigates the ethical fault lines of such digital pursuits. The authors argue that five key issues are at stake in the new media: identity, privacy, ownership and authorship, credibility, and participation. Drawing on evidence from informant interviews, emerging scholarship on new media, and theoretical insights from psychology, sociology, political science, and cultural studies, the report explores the ways in which youth may be redefining these concepts as they engage with new digital media. The authors propose a model of "good play" that involves the unique affordances of the new digital media; related technical and new media literacies; cognitive and moral development and values; online and offline peer culture; and ethical supports, including the absence or presence of adult mentors and relevant educational curricula. This proposed model for ethical play sets the stage for the next part of the GoodPlay project, an empirical study that will invite young people to share their stories of engagement with the new digital media.The John D. and Catherine T.

Abstract

This report summarizes the results of an ambitious three-year ethnographic study, funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, into how young people are living and learning with new media in varied settings—at home, in after school programs, and in online spaces. It offers a condensed version of a longer treatment provided in the book Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out (MIT Press, 2009). The authors present empirical data on new media in the lives of American youth in order to reflect upon the relationship between new media and learning. In one of the largest qualitative and ethnographic studies of American youth culture, the authors view the relationship of youth and new media not simply in terms of technology trends but situated within the broader structural conditions of childhood and the negotiations with adults that frame the experience of youth in the United States.The book that this report summarizes was written as a collaborative effort by members of the Digital Youth Project, a three-year research effort funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and conducted at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Southern California.John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Reports on Digital Media and Learning

Abstract

Many teens today who use the Internet are actively involved in participatory cultures—joining online communities (Facebook, message boards, game clans), producing creative work in new forms (digital sampling, modding, fan videomaking, fan fiction), working in teams to complete tasks and develop new knowledge (as in Wikipedia), and shaping the flow of media (as in blogging or podcasting). A growing body of scholarship suggests potential benefits of these activities, including opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, development of skills useful in the modern workplace, and a more empowered conception of citizenship. Some argue that young people pick up these key skills and competencies on their own by interacting with popular culture; but the problems of unequal access, lack of media transparency, and the breakdown of traditional forms of socialization and professional training suggest a role for policy and pedagogical intervention.This report aims to shift the conversation about the "digital divide" from questions about access to technology to questions about access to opportunities for involvement in participatory culture and how to provide all young people with the chance to develop the cultural competencies and social skills needed. Fostering these skills, the authors argue, requires a systemic approach to media education; schools, afterschool programs, and parents all have distinctive roles to play.The John D. and Catherine T.

Abstract

Following economists and scientists, politicians of various European countries have realized that a modern society with a declining birthrate is in need of immigrants. What can journalists contribute, in order to enable migrants to feel at home in their receiving country? What can be missed and ruined by journalists and media with regard to the integration of ethnic minorities? Scholars from Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the U.S. present their findings on the matter of media integration of migrants. Can European media learn from experiences in the classic countries of immigration in North America?

Abstract

Medien tragen seit jeher dazu bei, Bezüge zwischen Raum und Zeit neu zu ordnen. Spätestens seit dem 19. Jahrhundert durchdringen sie massiv unseren Arbeits-, Freizeit- und Wissenschaftsalltag, so dass sich die Frage nach dem Wandel von Raum-Zeit-Konfigurationen nicht zuletzt historisch stellt. Angesichts der medial gewonnenen Einsichten in den Mikro- und Makroraum unserer lebensweltlichen Umgebung wird insbesondere die Wahrnehmung des Subjekts von sich selbst nachhaltig beeinflusst. Ziel des Buches ist es, den kulturellen Prozess dieser Selbst-Reflexion multiperspektivisch näher einzugrenzen.

Abstract

Wie lässt es sich erklären, dass die Massenmedien über mehrere Tage hinweg in allen Teilen der Welt über ausschließlich ein und dasselbe Thema berichten? Christian Morgner nähert sich diesen »Weltmedienereignissen« und gibt soziologisch überzeugende Antworten zur Strukturförmigkeit des Phänomens. Durch Auswertung umfangreicher Fernseh- und Zeitungsmaterialien aus verschiedenen Weltregionen, die über das Attentat auf John F. Kennedy, den Unfalltod Lady Dianas und den Untergang der Titanic berichtet haben, entwickelt er begriffliche Mittel aus der empirischen Forschung heraus. Damit liegt nun eine stringente mediensoziologische Studie vor, die durch enge Kombination von Theorie und Empirie sowie durch komplexe Theorieentwicklung besticht.

Abstract

"Terrorism. 9/11 in Context" is an anthology of thematic priorities that aims to establish a better understanding of the complexities of terrorism aside from one-dimensional characterisations in media and politics. &#xD;The main focal points are: The definition of terrorism, its causes, mythological charging and pop cultural realization. Reactions of the state towards the terrorist challenge - the political, military and security &#xD;aspects as well as media counter strategies - are also of keen interest. Further, as case-studies from the US, &#xD;Latin America and Europe clearly demonstrate the state can also be a perpetrator of terrorism, either during covert operations or by adopting the mirror image of guerrillas and terrorists in counter insurgency warfare. &#xD;&#xD;The main thread of "Terrorism. 9/11 in Context" is the analysis of the "superstructure"- the symbolic and ideological sources of terrorism. Terrorist violence is seen as commitment for radical political change, &#xD;which is fuelled not only by political and social grievances, but also by the gratification of a radical-action identity. Thus, terrorism is most of all the product of a powerful idea, which motivates and stimulates &#xD;activists, giving them the strong conviction needed to follow through their "project". It's the idea that not &#xD;only is it possible to wage resistance against an alleged illegitimate, corrupt authority; it is also possible to inspire others to participate in an avant-garde armed struggle. On the other hand, the perspective of &#xD;politicians and authorities on the terrorist enemy is also influenced to a certain degree by imagination and projection - this process is analysed through the depiction of terrorism in cinema, media and the imitation&#xD;of terrorist tactics by counter terrorism forces.

Abstract

Welche Rolle spielen virtuelle Welten für Kunst und Kultur? Die Fortschritte der Forschung und der Technik haben in den letzten Jahren Virtual-Reality-Technologien allgemein verfügbar gemacht. Doch sind sie jetzt ausgereift? Und können virtuelle Welten, die darauf aufbauen und das Eintauchen in eine fremde Welt ermöglichen, selber als eine Art Basistechnologie angesehen werden? Diese Fragen werden in den Beiträgen des Bandes im Kontext von Anwendungen im Kunst- und Kulturbereich geklärt.
