Wikipedia and New Media Literacies


I assume that anyone who reads this blog is likely also a reader of Henry Jenkins, but on the off chance you’re not…  Henry gave a keynote address at the National Media Education Conference earlier in the week, focusing on Wikipedia as a case study for new media literacy education, reproduced in two parts on his blog. He drew a good deal about Middlebury’s adventures with Wikipedia this spring, which I’ve chronicled here, including some of the comments I made about my students’ explorations & discoveries. Check it out!

(And for those of you flowing the opposite direction from Henry’s blog here, welcome!)
